Metro (RED)

in Red


The world’s first radially tensioned umbrella, designed to fight rainstorms — and win

Inspired by the extreme weather of their native New Zealand, Blunt set out to completely redesign the umbrella — and the results speak for themselves. With telescopic ribs, a modern wind-shearing shape and a unique radial tensioning system, Blunt umbrellas won’t blow out, give up, or fly away. The Blunt Metro is their go-anywhere travel umbrella, designed to endure serious rain and wind while remaining small and portable.

Blunt has teamed up with (RED) to support global HIV/AIDS programs that provide counseling, testing, and medicine. 15% of the retail price of each (RED) edition Blunt Umbrella will go to fight AIDS with (RED).


  • Tested and rated to stand up to Force 9 winds — up to 55mph
  • Unique Radial Tensioning System for ultimate resistance to blow-outs
  • Blunt™ tips that distribute force (and don’t poke passers-by)
  • Aerodynamic and engineered to be easy-to-handle
  • 15% of (RED) edition Blunt umbrellas goes toward fighting AIDS with (RED)

About Blunt

  • “Blunt™ umbrellas are designed from the inside out. They have been engineered. A Blunt™ is not just another pretty umbrella. Our umbrellas feature patented Blunt™ tips and telescopic ribs that form an integral part of our unique radial tensioning system (RTS) creating the world’s only fully tensioned umbrella. As part of our design process, all our models are independently wind tunnel tested to speeds well in excess of everyday use. And because most people never use umbrellas inside wind tunnels, we also use real world testing to make sure our umbrellas perform. We break them so you don’t have to.”
