Every BLUNT umbrella features patented BLUNT Tips that form an integral part of its unique Radial Tensioning System (RTS). A system that redirects, transfers and distributes the effort used in opening the umbrella throughout its entire canopy surface. It has been proven in winds up to 73 mph. A Blunt umbrella is opened by sliding the advanced Push/Pull runner upwards. This action is similar to a conventional umbrella. The Blunt umbrella differs by creating optimum tension in its canopy in a revolutionary new way. Its uniquely hard-wearing design means it will be a pleasure to use, year after year.
“Structurally, the Blunt umbrella falls somewhere between suspension bridge and NASA space probe”.
