Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the SOL Prymus 2, which are the same as the Synergy wing. 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.

white, black-red leading edge

red, black-white leading edge

light blue, black-red leading edge

yellow, black-red leading edge

royal blue, black-white leading edge
