We developed the Dual Action Repair for Tubeless (DART) to repair large punctures and slices in tubeless tires faster, easier, and more reliably than existing tire plugs
Unlike traditional tire plugs that attempt to press rubber strips into a puncture, dual action DARTs create both a mechanical and a chemical seal. The DART anchors into a puncture while creating a simple and safe chemical reaction with your Stan’s sealant to quickly form a permanent airtight bond. The DART’s patent pending ability to react with latex sealant makes tubeless tire repair fast, easy, and reliable for every rider. Traditional plug 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 only a tight fit to hold them in place.
In contrast, the DART’s sonically welded plastic tip and heavy duty woven material anchor firmly in place and stay put during even the most aggressive riding, while being safer for rims, rim tape, and your hands. The strong and flexible laser-cut material of the DART contours to different punctures and maximizes surface area sealing power. Because the DART anchors to your tire and creates a bond with your sealant, it also 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.
At only 15g complete, the DART Tool is designed to be extremely light, durable and compact to fit into pockets and packs, while offering an ergonomic design that’s easy to hold and allows precise 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 molded 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 DART Tool is covered by a limited lifetime warranty. The DART makes tubeless tire repair fast, easy, and reliable for every rider.
