Default Vibram dyes?

Does it even take dye?
Thanks for any responses in advance!

How well? I lurk on the dye threads and don't remember seeing a Vibram dye.

They take dye pretty well, but I do have one Vibram dye job that looked great at first but faded very quickly. When I get home I can show you before and after pictures. I had a friend dye it for me.

It dyes just fine. I cant speak to fading as I no longer own this disc.

Here you can see the original dye job. Looks pretty good. I got the ace the same day I got it back from my dye guy.


Here's what it looks like today. This was taken inside so the light is obviously less colorful, but you can still see the dye color has faded a lot. I'm not sure what kind of dye he used. I think a Rit/ Acetone combo.


And here you can see the inside of the disc which was dyed black. Now it has faded to a bland green. You can see some sharpie here. That black sharpie is the same color the dye originally was.

Also, here's an Ascent that was dyed maybe 4 months ago. Hasn't faded much.
