Representing Target's vision for the future of darts, the Elysian 9 is the next generation of the limited edition darts. Delivering an experience that transcends darts and challenging the construct of what a dart can be, the objective remains the same; Create something truly beautiful.
This year, the Elysian 9 is inspired by 'Speed'. Setting the minds racing of our extremely talented designers, they saw a vast landscape of visual material that has been documented around the theme of Speed over thousands of years. From sleek lines of a Roman arrow to the mind-warping physics behind hypersonic travel, there is a gigantic library of inspiration.
Captivating the image of Speed, the Elysian 9 combines a range of coatings that showcase movement even while the dart is stationary. The front of the barrel features an experimental chrome asymmetric lines and vent grip precisely milled into the barrel with the fluidity of the design extending onto the exclusive Swiss Storm Points. This contrasts to the colour shifting rear of the barrel that perfectly frames the design to create a truly mesmerising dart. In total, the barrel takes over ten times longer than other darts to be created before applying coatings and going through a strict review to ensure they meet the Target standards.
