Precision maneuverability. Accurate bait presentation. Meticulous speed control. You count on your trolling motor for a lot. And along the way, it has to fight corrosion, run quietly, and perform with flawless reliability.
Riptide SM is the trusted powerhouse that meets those challenges head-on, keeping you in position to make the catch of the day, day after day! The Riptide SM comes in 55- (RT55), 80- (RT80), or 101-thrust power (RT101)... see the chart below for more details on the features and choices available.
Here's a little more to help make your decision easy:
Minn Kota's famous cool, quiet power:
Larger brushes, windings and commutators generate less heat, less noise and run cooler-- extending motor life and conserving battery power. You get greater sustained thrust and more time on the water. A unique bearing system produces low rpms / high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise-- so quiet they'll never hear you coming.
Digital Maximizer: Instead of wasting energy with a constant flow of power, Digital Maximizer delivers only what's needed... a precise amount of power at any setting, along with variable speed control. The bottom line is more time on the water for you.
Indestructible Composite Shaft:
Guaranteed by Minn Kota for life! Pound for pound, it's stronger than steel. Shaft flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode.
Weedless Wedge 2 Prop:
Only Minn Kota®'s Weedless Wedge 2 Prop can push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. They've improved the legendary design with swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
The Riptide SM features Minn Kota's Tilt / Extend Tiller... it tilts up 45° and extends up to 6" to suit any style of fishing!
Models RT80BG and RT101BG feature Minn Kota's Bowguard 360° mount, a heavy duty, saltwater-engineered stainless steel spring. It enables the mount to break away on impact from any angle, then automatically resets itself, protecting the Motor and your bow from hidden obstacles. Detaches easily.
Models RT55LD and RT80LD feature the Latch & Door mount. The Latch & Door mount features non-binding nylon inserts and anti-seize lubricant for a lifetime of trouble-free use. Removes quickly and easily for safe storage.
