Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Ozone Mantra. 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. As far as I know, the underside of each design is all-white.

white, with black and red pattern
