It’s still possible to tear a tyre whist running Rimpact. As such we use tyre plugs to get us out of a sticky situation on epic rides. When Stan’s launched the DART we were over the moon that there was finally a reliable solution to plugging a tyre quickly and effectively. No more fiddly worms, no more repairs that fail after a few runs.
Introducing the new Dual Action Repair for Tubeless or DART. The DART is Stans’ solution to fix damaged tires faster, easier, and better than existing plug tools. While traditional tire plugs try to wedge rubber strips into a puncture, the DART creates a chemical reaction with your Stan’s sealant to quickly form a permanent airtight bond. The dual actions of the DART include the mechanical fill created by inserting a piece of material into the puncture, and a chemical reaction that activates the sealant.
The DART’s patent pending ability to react with Stan’s latex sealant makes it more effective than any other tool on the market, but we didn’t stop there. To create the best repair for tubeless tires possible, we made sure every detail was right. Traditional tools were originally developed for car tires, and their long, sharp tips can cause damage to rim tape, or cut hands. Even worse, their plugs can actually expand many punctures because they rely on a tight fit to hold them in place. In contrast, the DART’s plastic tip is barbed to anchor firmly in place and stay put during even the most aggressive riding, while being safer for rims, rim tape, and your hands. The material of the DART is also more flexible and better able to contour to the shapes of different punctures, maximizing surface area to increase the sealing reaction. The DART anchors to your tire and creates an instant bond with our sealant and won’t pull out while riding the way a conventional plug can. One of the best features of the DART’s design is that it doesn’t require trimming once inserted, and excess material won’t get in the way of your ride. DARTs can’t be felt while riding, even on road tires, and they wear smooth naturally. The DART Tool is designed to be extremely light, durable, and easy to fit into pockets and packs, while offering an ergonomic design that’s easy to hold and allows precision DART placement.
The DART Tool’s handle includes a built-in valve core remover, making it easy to add sealant. The tool is made of an ultra-strong but light moulded plastic. Because even the small details are important, the rod that presses DARTs into punctures is made of ultralight, corrosion-resistant and incredibly strong carbon. The length of the rod is specifically calibrated to let you insert DARTs to the perfect depth every time, just by pressing until the head of the DART Tool contacts your tire. No more damage to rim or rim tape during a fast repair.
DART includes enough for 2 repairs; refills offer 5x repairs.
Most important of all, Stans designed the DART to be quick to deploy, so you can get back on the trail fast. The head of the DART Tool is double-sided and reversible, allowing it to hold two sealed DARTs on each side. This makes it possible to install two DARTs quickly when sealing the largest slices or multiple punctures. Clear caps protect the stored DARTS, keeping them clean and ready to use, while being quick to unthread and easy to see through to ensure you have a fresh DART ready for your next ride. It all fits together in a compact tool that easily fits in any pocket or pack and can be accessed quickly, without having to disassemble anything on your bike.
