Great value, good performance, tried and true, Great for the all-around rider, I like F / R specific pairing
The price tag is too low! haha... You'll be shunned by bike-snobs! J/K
Paired up with the Smoke on the rear wheel, the Dart adds to an unbeatable match for great performance, all conditions preparation, and value($10).
I've owned more expensive tires and I actually had to learn to trust the front-end again when I put the Dart on because my last front tire would jack-knife or washout where the DART holds on strong! The tread pattern really works great in turns and on off-camber sections of trail, especially with roots. This tire has restored my confidence conditions that can sometimes be sketchy. As you know, the most common config is to pair it with the Panaracer Smoke on the rear wheel.
