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
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.
