For the ultimate in fun you need the Apollo AV-2 Evolution Scooter Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV). This model features a high performance lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO) battery, a progressive acceleration control system and a battery life indicator.
Apollo manufactured the original AV-1 Scooter for over 20 years. It has been recognised as one of the most reliable diver propulsion vehicles in the world. We are very proud to have available this next generation in DPV with enhanced LiFePO battery.
Progressive Acceleration System:
The Apollo AV2 Evolution Scooter's newly design rotational speed adjustment function allows for precise changes to your speed while in motion. This easily activated speed adjustment results in smooth effortless riding and allow for easy synchronization of speed between divers in a variety of geographical areas and varied current conditions.
LED Battery Indicator:
When the main power switch is turned on, the LED battery life indicator lights up providing the diver with a guide to remaining battery life.
3 Speed Propeller:
Additionally, it's possible to easily vary the propeller's angle or pitch by 3 positions, which allows for even more fine-tuning of the scooter's speed to the individual diver's needs.
By using the wings it's now possible to pull two more divers with the Apollo AV-2 Evolution Scooter. The diver's different physiques when holding onto the wings have virtually no effect to the scooter's performance. The speed and distance with 3 men diving are almost the same as using the scooter solo without a saddle.

Hands Free Riding Style
Travel at top speed. Coast by your dive buddies twisting and turning like a dolphin. Literally dive circles around them. The hands free riding saddle helps you move like you were born to dive. steering is achieved through body positioning. A built-in arm extends trigger switch access forward for a more convenient placement. Both hands are free to extend like an air-plane or maybe just to hold cameras, lights, and other accessories essential to your dive. More than just a fun ride.
There are many practical reasons for saddle use. Use of an underwater vehicle in general can reduce your air consumption by up to 50%. The saddle places you and the vehicle in a more streamlined position. Being dragged long distances creates excessive muscular fatigue in the arms. Furthermore, riding behind a scooter creates resistance and reduces the efficiency of the propeller blades. Riding horizontally in front of the scooter streamlines the body and scooter, reducing drag and dramatically improving both speed and distance travelled on a single battery charge. In addition, both hands are free for carrying lights, cameras or other underwater equipment.
By using the Wings it's now possible to pull 2 more divers with the Apollo AV-2 Evolution Scooter. The diver's different physiques when holding onto the wings have virtually no effect on the scooters performance. The speed and distance with 3 men diving are almost the same as using the scooter solo without a saddle.
