The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Sport 3. 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.
'Sunset' - red leading edge, white, yellow trailing edge
'Slide' - blue leading edge, white, red trailing edge
'Time' - red leading edge, white, gray trailing edge
'Ice' - light blue leading edge, white, blue trailing edge
