Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the color schemes for the Trekking Rando. 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 Rando's a bit different. As far as I know, only the first design below has an all-white lower surface. The rest are the same on upper and lower surfaces.

red with yellow rim pattern, white lower surface

all pink

all blue

all purple
