Power through even the strongest currents.
The CUDA 650 is the front runner of the CUDA models. At 53 lbs, it is a lightweight compared to more traditional lead acid scooters yet packs the performance of a heavyweight.
Designed for expedition diving it has all the great features of the CUDA family: huge power for when you need to push through the current with the heaviest gear, and the economy to run for hours. Based on the Tahoe Benchmark* figures the CUDA can top out at 248ft/min (76m/min) and cruise for over 5.5 miles (9.3Km).
The entire housing, body and tail, was designed using finite element analysis to remove every piece of excess material while maintaining the strength necessary for a 600ft (180m) depth rating.
The CUDA family shares many features and parts with the Sierra family. This ensures teams can interchange common spares and new designs maintain the solid reliability, day after day, of the existing X-Scooters. However the main parts, bodies, tails and batteries are not interchangeable between families.

Brushless MotorsVery reliable and durable motors designed specifically for our scooters. They are extremely lightweight and efficient for their size.
Electronic Speed Control"On the Fly" shift gears. Click to slow down. Double click to speed up. The CUDA series has 8 gears. When initially turning on the scooter it will always be in 3rd gear.
Variable Pitch PropellerTweek your scooters performance by adjusting the angle of the propeller blades. This is done easily in the middle of a dive by turning the pitch knob on the back of the propeller.
Minimalist DesignEvery aspect of the scooter was made to be bulletproof. From the 2 penetration design, 600ft depth rated aluminum body and tail, or the magnetically driven speed control.
Utility D-RingClip off your scooter easily with the front mounted D-Ring. Mounting the D-Ring is a sacrificial zinc bracket. The bracket deters corrosion to the aluminum body and tail.
Tow Behind DesignRide effortlessly through the water. Adjust your tow cord to fit your needs. The better your trim when scootering, the more efficient your scooter.
