Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Airwave Mustang. I hope this approach is useful for getting a good idea of the colors when quickly comparing wings. Most paragliders have a basic wing color plus something different adorning the leading edge. You might be able to get a detailed look at one of the color schemes from the manufacturer's picture at the top of this page.

gold leading edge, red, white trailing edge

red leading edge, white, blue trailing edge

blue leading edge, white, blue trailing edge
