Umbrella with Dyneema®

180,00 

The umbrella made of paragliding fabric from the innovative collaboration between Le parapluie de Cherbourg and NEO.

The brilliant idea of creating an umbrella made of paragliding fabric is not only fanciful, it allows making an umbrella that is out of the ordinary The Dyneema® fabric used by NEO in its paragliders and backpacks makes the umbrella stronger and therefore more durable, while remaining lightweight. Dyneema® is a super-strong, ultra-light fiber: it is 15 times stronger than steel and 30 to 40% lighter than Kevlar for the same strength. What’s more, Dyneema® is resistant to UV rays, moisture, chemical attack and abrasion – perfect for an umbrella.

The Voyageur model by Parapluie de Cherbourg is practical. A retractable, automatic travel umbrella for real comfort, it accompanies and protects you wherever you go while taking up minimal space. It is designed to fold up for easier transport in your NEO day or travel backpack.

Handmade at la manufacture de Cherbourg, in France.

MADE IN FRANCE

The umbrella made of Teppanyaki fabric is the result of the collaboration between NEO and Le Parapluie de Cherbourg. The combination of the excellent know-how specific to each of the two brands has made it possible to create a unique, timeless and durable product. Handmade at la Manufacture des Parapluies de Cherbourg in Cherbourg, France.

Two worlds of French know-how in one product

The Manufacture of the Le Parapluie de Cherbourg is the vibrant heart of this beautiful 100% French adventure. The men and women who work here are passionate about their art and love a job well done. Quality craftsmen who have succeeded in perpetuating exceptional French know-how, they expertly design unique creations, synonymous with strength and elegance. The collaboration with NEO is, first of all, a human collaboration, a shared curiosity of discovering skills and a mutual admiration for good products. That’s how we came to realize that our Dyneema® Teppanyaki fabric, which we use for our paragliding equipment, had everything we needed to create a truly exceptional umbrella. The collaboration between both companies was therefore natural, motivated by the passion of creating unique objects.

The Teppanyaki fabric is the result of the collaboration between the Catalan textile company IBQ and NEO, and was developped specifically for paragliding. Technical collaboration between textile manufacturer IBQ and NEO has resulted in the development of a Ripstop Dyneema®, based on high-tenacity polyamide and coated with polyurethane. This highly technical fabric, together with aluminum fittings, meets the characteristics needed for hyper technical lightweight products intended for paragliding and outdoor sports:

– Highly resistant to tear and abrasion
– Little elongation
– No deformation
– Resistant to dirt and washable
– Very light
– Best compromise between durability and lightness
