Details & Specs

Minn Kota® Power - DriveTM Bow Mount Trolling Motor. A fisherman's favorite reborn with great new features!

Why mess with a good thing? Well, why the heck not if you can make a good thing better! You'll find it hard to argue with the changes made here, including a handy deploy-assist lever and an easier to use foot pedal. Plus, select models feature the AutoPilot™ navigation system and Universal Sonar 2! They all team up to make your day on the water less work and more fun!

Waterproof Foot Pedal:

Attached to an 18' cord to give you hands-free control of speed, steering, on / off from anywhere on your boat! Ergonomically correct design keeps you comfortable on the lake all day!

Deploy Assist Lever:

Just press down on the lever to drop the motor in the water, and the fishing is on!

AutoPilot™ navigation system:

Simply point your motor in the direction you want to go and AutoPilot™ will automatically take care of the steering for you! Even when the wind is blowing and the water is less than calm, AutoPilot™ will automatically adjust to keep you on course. And because you don't have to keep adjusting the steering, you spend more time fishing!

Universal Sonar 2

US2 features sonar and temperature sensing compatible with all major brands of fishfinders. The transducer is built into the lower portion of the motor with all the wiring safely protected by the strong composite shaft, giving you a clean look without any exposed wiring. All you have to do is plug your fish finder in with the help of the plug-in accessory adapter and you're ready to track all the hotspots! US2 is also compatible with dual beam technology for an expanded view and greater bottom detail.

That's not all:
  • Super strong composite shaft is 3 times stronger than steel
  • Digital Maximizer™ technology allows motor to run 5 times longer on a single charge than conventional speed coil technology
  • Runs cool and quiet to cut down fish-spooking noise
  • Weedless Wedge 2™ Propeller gets through the thick stuff at any speed
  • Mount: Power Drive
  • Control: Electric Steering
  • Max Thrust: 55

Keep reading for even more info on the technology at work: 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.

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.

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.

Updated Riptide SE Mount:

Riptide's all-new mount sports a high-strength anodized aluminum arm running right down the center. Built with uncompromising strength, it also features rock-solid stowing and a latch&door design for easy removal.
