Never back down from a fight with saltwater. Riptide SF has up to 112 pounds
of thrust and a take-no-prisoners mount that puts saltwater in its place and you
on the fish.

Lift-Assist’s stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring makes stow and
deploy easy. When you deploy, let go of Fortrex and Lift-Assist will gradually
guide it into the water – quickly, but without impact. And stowing your motor is
50% easier – as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate
That extruded, anodized aluminum arm doesn’t just look tough. It redefines
tough. The Mono-Arm Design gives it ruggedness and strength that’s unmatched by
any other motor on the water. And with its ingenious one-piece construction,
Fortrex runs with less wear, longer life and quieter operation.
Utilizes an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor is stowed
or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give,
reduced steering torque and years of silent operation.
Tilts (up to 45°) and extends (up to 6") to give you maximum control.
Removable Bowguard 360º
The Bowguard 360º breaks away on impact from any direction and automatically
resets itself - protecting your motor and your boat, so you can fish without
worry. Plus, its dual bearing system eliminates noise, and it's easily
Quick-Lock Cam Depth Adjuster
This easy-to-use adjuster lets you change depths simply and securely, and it
locks in tight to keep your motor right where you want it.
Motors with Digital Maximizer provide 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 - extending your time on the water.
Push-To-Test Battery Meter
This convenient meter on Riptide SF tells you how much battery life you have
left - at the push of a button.
Weedless Wedge 2 Prop
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.
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
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. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting
in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our
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
