A wind - proof umbrella

post-image
The problem with most umbrellas is that the hinges are the weakest points, making the umbrellas vulnerable to strong winds. The Senz umbrella is designed to redirect the wind, allowing it to float on a strong gust like a kite. There are no hinges in the design. Instead there is sturdy ribbing that?s nearly impossible to turn inside-out. www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2018/03/30/how-a-dutch-designer-unlocked-the-secret-of-a-storm-proof-umbrella/
