I can find no test report data in English from CEN for this Sky paraglider, sorry.
The simple graphics below represent the lower surface color schemes for the Sky Ares. The upper surface pattern is the same as the lower surface pattern in each case, but with the colors switched. 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 another color adorning the leading edge. Like the Fides 2, the Ares is just a bit different!
'Red' - red and white pattern on upper and lower surfaces
'Blue' - blue and white pattern on upper and lower surfaces
'Golden' - yellow and white pattern on upper and lower surfaces
