The Piranha is designed out of the gate to be modular. With self contained neutrally buoyant battery packs and a simple cam-strap securing the modular sections you can easily build the scooter you need for the dive. For every battery you add, your run-time increases respectively and your speed and power stay the same.
We've integrated the most popular video system in the world onto the Piranha Dive scooter. Built into the handle is a GoPro mount that can fit both a camera as well as neutrally buoyant gauge mounts. With your GoPro mounted on the scooter, you'll always have a steady platform to film your dives.
There is no longer a need to mess with bags and lead shot to get your X-Scooter weighted perfectly. The Piranha is ready to go out of the box. Simply take the two weight plates out for Fresh Water leave them in for Salt. You'll have perfect buoyancy and trim either way.
The Piranha is the lightest DPV on the market weighing only 25lb/11kg. You no longer need an 85lb scooter to get 2 hours of run time. It's easy to carry, too with the integrated carry handle. Nothing could be easier.
To make the Piranha dive scooter better than everything else we looked outside the industry for inspiration. Leveraging the huge R&D effort the bycicle industry has put in over the years we created a design based on an ergonomic bike grip with a trigger that emulates a gear shift. The handle is available in two sizes, large and small, and the trigger is reversable to suit different trigger finger lengths.
To give you the best possible power and efficiency the 2016 Piranha dive scooter uses a Gates belt drive for optimum performance. Quieter and smoother than traditional gears Gates belt drives are great
All our Piranha scooters are fitted with programmable electronics, allowing you to fully customize the number of gears, the speed of each gear, the start gear and the acceleration ramp. Also included is a data-logger that allows you to capture all your key electronics data like power consumption on an actual dive. To unlock these features you will need the optional programming interface and a windows computer.
