Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Ozone Buzz, which happen to be the same as for the Ozone Rush. 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. As far as I know, the underside of each design is all-white.

white, with red and orange pattern

yellow, with red and orange pattern

orange, with blue and yellow pattern

red, with blue and white pattern

red, with black and yellow pattern
