It is a well-known irony that on the days you need to use your umbrella the most – the wettest and windiest – it is virtually guaranteed the umbrella will break, blow inside out or poke someone in the eye. This need not be the case, with the introduction of Blunt Umbrellas, a New Zealand company that has revolutionised umbrella design.
Blunt Umbrellas will withstand the strongest winds, with the Classic model tested to 117km/hour. With its eye-catching canopy design and unique structure, the Blunt has redefined the market and created the world’s best umbrella.
Blunt Umbrellas feature patented blunt tips that form an integral part of its Radial Tensioning System. This system redirects and distributes the effort used in opening the umbrella throughout the entire canopy. As the Blunt is opened, its additional double struts redirect the effort into the floating ‘ribs’ which reach out like fingers stretching into a glove. They then transfer the opening force into the blunt tips on the end of each rib. These tips then open within their pockets, evenly distributing tension right to the edge of the umbrella.
The product range caters for all users, offering light and compact models, more heavy duty options and ultimate performance models designed for the golf course.
Prices vary from RRP $69.00-$149.00 depending on model.

If you ever thought that the trusty umbrella could never be improved, you were very wrong.
Blunt umbrellas are the future in umbrella design. From the easy grip handle to the non tip canopy, blunt has safety and comfort in mind. You can now look forward to those rainy days.
I received a bright yellow umbrella that looks like a sunflower. The umbrella is surprisingly light weight but very robust. It is very easy to open and close without any sharp metal components to cause injuries. I love the fact that I can't poke anyone in the eye! It came with a handy cover as well.
