The upgraded Plus version of the Dart consists solely of the most premium materials. A high grade graphite base, premium wood core and a super light yet robust topsheet make for a faster and more responsive ride. While it has a very powder-oriented aesthetic, its turning performance is uncompromised on groomers as well. The Dart is the perfect shape for riders who are looking to focus on their turning style, while driving out of turns with maximum speed.
The wide frame, setback and taper offer maximum float and a relaxed riding experience in deep powder. The extra width also reduces toe and heel drag on groomers, enabling you to go low when carving. The deep swallow tail is playful when releasing out the back in soft snow, while also allowing a tighter radius at the end of your turns.
The Dart Plus features our FLOAT CAMBER, which curves into a rocker shape in the nose. This profile helps you stay on top in deep powder while maintaining speed throughout the turn. The camber under-foot offers grip and stability on hard-pack and in variable conditions, while the early rise in the nose allows for an easy initiation of turns. We recommend trying to ride this shape with more weight on the front foot.

This chart shows the range in what each size can handle. It is never our intention to categorize riders and their preferences. Our philosophy of snowboarding is to try new shapes, lengths, widths, and to keep an open mind for alternative riding experiences; however, we do have some limits to consider so that your board will work as it was designed to.
Your weight plays a major role in how the board will flex, and your shoe size will affect toe and heel drag when turning. The below size chart is for reference only, as our recommendations may vary depending on your stance and riding ability.

I was originally going for the classic Dart, but as soon as the Dart Plus dropped, I could help myself and pulled the trigger. I've been waiting 2 months to ride this board (not a ton of snow in CO) since I bought this board as a more dedicated pow board.
I regret everyday of not riding this board. Don't get me wrong, I still love the rest of my quiver, but man this board absolutely shreds. It holds its edge super well because of all that heavy camber even on ice and can lay down some crazy carves. What I found very interesting about this board is that while being a very stiff board (I come from a long line of twin tip park boards), the increased amount of torsional and regular flex in the swallow tail allows you to change your carve radius significantly by putting more pressure on the back foot during a carve. I can go from down long radius drawn out euro carves to super tight circle carves just by changing how I applied pressure to the tail.
I also absolutely LOVE how fast this board is. And it wants to go fast. It even gets a little bit of pop off of rollers despite having a ratio of 4:1 between nose and tail.
A truly incredible ride and I automatically want to sell all my other boards just to buy more Koruas. I still can't comment on durability, but man this thing feels premium and I am sure will hold up well.
The only thing I found that I preferred on some of my other boards were the little bit of playfulness they posed in some of the choppier/rutted out terrain. But if the snow is good, there is no board that even touches the way this thing rides.
