The Piranha Concept

The Piranha is the lightest, most powerfull, dive scooter we could build and to maximize utility for both technical and recreational divers we have made it modular. With neutrally buoyant battery modules you can build and dive the scooter you need.
The P2 is simply the Piranha scooter with two batteries, there are no other differences.
Designed and Assembled in the USA.

Features


Add Batteries For More Runtime

The Piranha is designed to be modular. With self contained neutrally buoyant battery packs and a simple strap holding the scooter together 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.

GoPro Ready

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.

Lightweight But Powerfull

The Piranha is the lightest DPV on the market with the P1 weighing only 25lb/11kg. You no longer need a 85lb scooter to get 2 hours of run time, at 34lbs the P3 gives you 4 hours!!! It's easy to carry, too with the integrated carry handle. Nothing could be easier.

New Propeller, with “Line Trap”

The Piranha dive scooter has an all new propeller, we kept the efficient blades from the CUDA, but removed all the complex pitch adjustment and clutch mechanism, and replaced it with a solid one piece design. To cope with monofilament fishing line we built in a line trap that captures the line in a groove at the base of the propeller for easy removal, preventing it reaching the seals, and you having to remove the propeller.

Neutral Buoyancy out of the box

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.

Programmable Electronics

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.

Ergonomic Handle And Trigger

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.

Smooth & Quiet Belt Drive

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

18 month Battery Warranty!!!

We have teamed up with our battery supplier to give you an unprecedented warranty on the Piranha batteries. For 18 months if you have any issues, or the capacity falls bellow 70% of nominal capacity, we take care of you. This warranty is provided by the original manufacture of the packs and in the unlikely event that you have an issue Dive Xtras Inc will facilitate the process for you. Full details of the warranty can be found here. Note: This warranty does not cover damage by water through flooding or other incidents. All Dive Xtras scooters are tested prior to shipping.

Shipping & UN 38.3 Testing

The lithium batteries that are used in the Dive Xtras Piranha Series DPVs have been tested to and meet the highest criteria for lithium battery tests, the UN 38.3 Requirements. While shipping lithium batteries is difficult, we have made it as easy as possible by meeting these tests. The battery pack design was tested in accordance with the United Nations’ Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods Manual of Tests and Criteria, Fifth revised edition, Amendment 2, Part III, section 38.3. Subsection 38.3.3(f). The batteries may be offered for air (cargo only) or ground transportation to consumers & customers. Please send any inquiries regarding testing to info@dive-xtras.com.

Limited Air Travel

The Piranha lithium battery is too large for you to travel with it on an airplane. However we do have a travel battery kit that replaces the Lithium battery with a NiMh pack that IS allowed on all airlines.
For more details on flying with lithium you can read here. Note: the largest batteries allowed are 160Wh, the Piranha battery is almost 400Wh, over twice the allowed limit.
