Up to 112 pounds of thrust, precision maneuverability and optional Digital Maximizer™ for all day power. We only make one saltwater transom-mount, because it’s the only one you’ll ever need.
The Riptide offers 2 different steering options:
Telescoping Handle: 6-inch telescoping handle provides comfortable, easy steering
Tilt/Extend Tiller: Tilts up to 45° and extends up to 6" to give you maximum control
The Riptide offers 2 different speed control options:
Digital Maximizer: provides up to five times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any energy. These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power, while conserving your battery and extending your time on the water.
5 Fwd/3 Rev: provides five forward speed settings & three reverse speed settings to easily choose the speed you need for simple, intuitive control that puts you in command.
Push-to-Test Battery Meter
This convenient battery meter tells you how much battery life you have left at the push of a button.
112 lbs. of Thrust
Stronger than ever, only a Minn Kota is available with 112 pounds of thrust. Take to the water with improved control on the most powerful trolling motor so you can tackle heavy chop, wind, waves and more without so much as flinching.
The Riptide offers 2 different propeller models:
Weedless Wedge 2: Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Weedless Wedge™ 2 features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
Power Prop: Delivers extra power to help you push through heavy vegetation to get you where the fish are.
Advanced Corrosion Protection: Riptide's premium-grade alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armor plating & a durable, saltwater-resistant powder coat paint. With layers of protection, the elements are truly protected.
Fully Encapsulated Electronics: Marine-grade urethane fully encapsulates Riptide control boards to protect the electronic circuitry. All electrical connections are sealed with waterproof heat-shrink tubing to keep saltwater out.
Sacrificial Anode: We use metals that are properly balanced & a composite shaft to ward off galvanic corrosion. So the only piece left for saltwater to attack is this little zinc anode, which absorbs corrosion so the rest of the motor doesn't have to.
Advantage Minn Kota
Indestructible Composite Shaft: Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode. That’s why we’re confident enough to guarantee it for life. If we could guarantee it for longer than a lifetime, we would.
Cool, Quiet, Power:Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. The extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And the unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they’ll never hear you coming.
2-Year Warranty: This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty
