Push-To-Test Battery Meter
This convenient battery meter tells you how much battery life you have left - at the push of a button.
Weedless Wedge 2 prop pushes weeds away and takes on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
Riptide's premium-grade alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armor plating, and a durable, powder-coat paint. With layers of protection, the motor truly stands up to corrosion.
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: Metals are properly balanced, and a composite shaft wards off galvanic corrosion.
Advantage Minn Kota
Pound for pound, the composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode.
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And a unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they'll never hear you coming.
This motor is backed up with Minn Kota's two-year warranty.
