The Riptide PowerDrive Trolling Motor is designed for saltwater anglers who want reliable performance with smart boat control features. The PowerDrive features a tougher, sleeker new mount that houses an arsenal of innovative options.
Redesigned Mount and Aesthetics
The Riptide PowerDrive has been redesigned with new technology and remodeled to handle the workload that goes along with it, resulting in a stronger mount and bigger brains in a sleeker package.
i-Pilot with Bluetooth
Boat positioning becomes automatic with the revolutionary, GPS-powered i-Pilot. i-Pilot lets you set Spot-Locks, record paths, control speed and steering, and more. The redesigned remote has a 33% larger screen and the ability to communicate via Bluetooth. i-Pilot puts more options and easier operation at your fingertips, including reinvented Spot-Lock, the most accurate electronic GPS anchor ever.
i-Pilot Phone App
Bluetooth communication allows you to pair the i-Pilot with your smartphone and experience easy software updates and quick command of speed, steering, Spot-Lock, high-speed bypass, and Advanced AutoPilot.
The PowerDrive Deploy-Assist lever lets you get in and out of the water without breaking a sweat. Simply depress the lever to deploy, and when it's time to move, it stows easily and securely.
Provides up to 5 times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need. Variable speed control lets you dial in your precise speed, while the Digital Maximizer delivers the right amount of power while conserving your battery.
Push-To-Test Battery Meter
Indestructible Composite Shaft
Pound for pound, stronger than steel. This composite shaft flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode. That's why it's guaranteed for life.
Cool, Quiet Power
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. The unique bearing system reduces friction to cut out fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they'll never hear you coming.
Weedless Wedge 2 Prop
Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. The Weedless Wedge 2 Prop features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting performance.
Riptide's premium-grade alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armor plating, and a durable, saltwater-resistant powder-coat paint for advanced protection against corrosion.
Riptide control boards are fully encapsulated in marine-grade urethane to protect the electronic circuitry. All electrical connections are sealed with waterproof heat-shrink tubing to keep saltwater out.
Riptide features metals that are properly balanced and a composite shaft to ward off galvanic corrosion. The sacrificial zinc anode is the only piece left for saltwater to attack; it absorbs corrosion so the rest of the motor doesn't have to.
