Stan's NoTubes Dart Tool
While traditional tire plugs try to wedge rubber strips into a puncture, the Stan's No Tubes Dart Tool creates a 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 it more effective than traditional tire plugs, but Stan's didn’t stop there. To create the best repair for tubeless tires possible, we made sure every detail was right. 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 a tight fit to hold them in place. In contrast, the Stan's No Tubes Dart Tool 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 its laser-cut shape is optimized to contour to the shape of different punctures, maximizing surface area to increase the sealing reaction. Because the DART anchors to your tire and creates an instant 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.
