Ninety percent of all umbrellas produced are still based on the opening principle of the traditional Chinese parasol. The Inumbr(in)a starts from a whole new system. Their construction principle allows for 17% more shade compared to the classic parasol mechanism.
With Inumbra, all the technical parts that open and close the screen are above the UV-resistant fabric. Moreover, the flat design of the canopy catches less wind than typical convex shapes. In a wind test, it has resisted wind speeds up to Beaufort force 8.
