Frequently Asked Questions

Why Solbello?

Wind-broken tents and umbrellas fill our landfills and hospitalize thousands of people every year.

With its patented design to self-adjust in the wind, Solbello is the only wind-driven umbrella and the only shade to fully work with the wind, making your beach days safe and stress free.

How does it work?

How much wind is needed?

The Solbello Shade is powered by the wind. As little as 3 mph is all that is needed to float the shade effortlessly above you.

What if the wind changes direction?

As the wind shifts direction the shade was designed to self-adjust with the wind! (patented design)

No Wind?

No problem! A No-Wind Kit is included for those rare days that the wind isn't blowing at the beach (takes about 30 seconds). Do not use the No-Wind Kit in wind if the ground conditions don't allow the stakes to be planted securely. Always use your best judgement and use at your own risk.

Can it be Too Windy?

We've tested Solbello in winds exceeding 45 MPH, which is considered a tropical storm.

On April 2, 2024, the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) adopted the ASTM F3681-24 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Beach Umbrellas and Anchor Devices. Solbello has successfully passed the testing required to meet this safety standard set by ASTM. Additional tagging is required for full compliance. This testing demonstrated Solbello's safety in wind speeds of up to 30 MPH.

Is it Noisy?

In May 2024, we launched Solbello featuring QuietEdge™ technology. This patent-pending solution minimizes whipping noise at the sail's trailing edge during high winds. Through collaboration with our fabric mill, we've also developed a process to ensure the fabric remains quiet while still maintaining a UPF of 50+.

  • Quote From Customer:

"Super easy/fast to set up and adjust as the wind and sun angle changes. Have used it both with and without the ground tethers, based on varying wind conditions. One day the wind was probably 20+ mph and the shade worked great." - Charles


What's the Level of UV Protection?

Solbello's canopy has been treated to provide 50+ UPF Sun protection, meaning it blocks at least 98% of harmful UV rays.

How Many People will it Accommodate?

Solbello provides 64 square feet of shade. This is ideal for two or three.

  • Quote From Customer:

"I have experience with all the competitors and the Solbello is BY FAR the best one. Super easy to carry, throws a big enough shade area for three people with beach luggage or four people that know each other well.” - George

Where to Use

Is Solbello Only for Beaches?

Beaches offer open space air flow combined with natural sea breezes to make our product work right. Flat-wide-open beaches are ideal.

Using the No-Wind Kit, anywhere with penetrable ground has potential.

Is Solbello Allowed on Every Beach?

To our knowledge, Solbello is allowed on every beach in the United States except Horry County, SC (including Myrtle Beach), & Rehoboth Beach, DE.

Manual, Specs, and Care Instructions

Sea Breeze

Wind generally stops as the sun sets and picks back up when the sun rises. During beach days when the sun's rays are strongest (11am - 4pm), almost all beaches get a sufficient (3mph+) and consistent breeze more than 90% of the time.
