Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the upper surface color schemes for the Trekking Apine. 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, so the Alpine's a bit different. The lower surface of each design is all-white as far as I know.
