The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Swing Arcus 4. 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.
Actually, Swing offer a few more color schemes, but they are done on demand, and will probably cost you a little extra! Contact Swing for details.
orange leading edge, yellow trailing edge
red leading edge, orange trailing edge
red leading edge, red trailing edge
blue leading edge, cyan trailing edge
