The New Zealand manufacturer Blunt developed the worldwide first umbrella without sharp points and edges at the end of the cover. After presenting the storm-tested umbrella, which resists wind velocities of up to 120 h/km (wind strength 11), the same technology was used for the Golf_G2 umbrella.
Blunt developed the Golf umbrella in cooperation with professional golf Caddy Steve Williams: The New Zealand Caddy knows what it’s all about when it comes to protect from wind and stormy weather. The result of the cooperation is the Golf_G2.
The shaft of the highly modern umbrella is made of fiberglass, the cover out of fast drying polyester. The diameter of 146 cm of the Golf_G2 umbrella by Blunt comfortably offers enough space for two people.
Golf_G2 umbrella: The technique
The Blunt Golf_G2 was also developed in order to resist the most extreme weather circumstances. The difference between Blunt and common umbrellas is in the tension of the cover, since Blunt works with maximal tension on a revolutionary way. The frame of the Blunt umbrella is additionally reinforced with the so-called “double struts”. The power, which results while opening the umbrella, is led over the Double Struts to the umbrella struts.
Contrasting common umbrellas, the struts of this one have no determined length, but they are telescopically: the so-called “floating ribs”. These floating ribs lead the power to the patented Blunt tips at the end of every strut. This ensures that the Blunt tips separate and spread the power over the whole border of the cover instead of only to one targeted point. This is how tension emerges, ensuring stability. And the Golf_G2 thereby doesn’t show up any sharp edges.
