It takes time for ideas to become products. This is what happened to Knirps with the development of the ROOKIE school umbrella, which has been planned for years to round off the product range.
Now the time has finally come: ROOKIE has been developed, designed and produced and will accompany pupils from the age of six on their way to school, to the playground or to sports. The umbrella, which can be opened manually and is easy to operate, weighs 205 grams, has a diameter of 90 centimetres and has been reliably tested in a wind tunnel at speeds of up to 90 km/h. Additional safety is provided by the reflective, light-emitting material. The reflective, all-round band on the umbrella roof provides additional safety.
When it comes to design, Knirps does not use typical children's motifs for its umbrellas for school and cool teenagers - there are no unicorns, princesses or dragons on the umbrella roof. Here, in addition to six strong and clear solid colours, the cheeky eye-catching Bubble Bust design with neon-coloured splashes of colour on a black background is used. The geometric and colourful Triple Blue and Triple Pink designs are also available. Of course, design and safety must never be mutually exclusive, which is why safety is also the top priority for the design variants and the reflective tape also adorns these canopies.
Thanks to its handy pack size, there is always a place for the ROOKIE in a school bag, pocket or rucksack. From now on, no child or teenager will be surprised by the rain. Its ease of use and hard-wearing materials make ROOKIE the perfect everyday companion and parents can be sure that their youngest is safe and visible in road traffic thanks to the reflective elements.
Knirps gives a five-year guarantee on the entire product range, once again underlining the quality of the umbrellas designed and developed in Germany.
