I can find no non-numerical test report data from CEN for the Air-Sport Lhotse paraglider, sorry.

Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Air-Sport Lhotse. 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 further down this page.

white with blue pattern, blue upper surface
