Extremely light umbrellas
An everyday umbrella should be small, light and practical. That’s where our U Series really hits the mark.
The lightest Knirps umbrellas will win you over with their minimal weight, compact size, and good canopy coverage. But light doesn’t mean delicate in this case: our optimal blend of materials -- high-quality, aerospace-grade aluminium and fibreglass – meet the highest quality standards of the developers at Knirps.
The results of our wind-tunnel tests show just how strong these umbrellas are: the manual umbrella remained stable in winds of 100 km/h, while the automatic umbrella made it to 120 km/h. Both of our U Series umbrellas are reliable companions for any weather.
Easy handling is important to our umbrella designers. Our manual US.050 pocket umbrella opens effortlessly when you slide the runner. Pushing the button closes it again.
The Knirps U.200 pocket umbrella, in contrast, opens automatically at the touch of a button.
Press it again and the canopy closes. The shaft can then be compressed by hand until it clicks into place.
It takes just seconds to open and close. And the red button is just the right size for ease and comfort.
