The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Nova Mamboo. 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. The Mamboo has the same color on upper and lower leading edges. Also, for each color scheme, the underside is white except for the leading edge.
red, white stripe, black leading edge
orange, white stripe, blue leading edge
blue, white stripe, red leading edge
white, black stripe, yellow leading edge
