Details & Specs

Minn Kota® Edge L&D Pedal-control Trolling Motors. The pinnacle of power and performance in a pedal-control unit!

"It's just a trolling motor, right?" Tell that to the guy who lost a day of fishing fixing his cheap knock-off after it bowed down to a weed bed. Your motor shouldn't get in your way, it should get things out of your way. That's the philosophy behind Edge, the no-nonsense, nose-to-the-grindstone powerhouse with relentless durability.

But what good is power if you don't have a bit of finesse to get you where the fish are? Not to worry... the Edge is still packin' the same cool, quiet power and easy steering that you've come to expect. And, when your day on the water wraps up, simply un-screw the Latch & Door mount and store the Motor, easy as that! Take your pick of 45 (45 / L&D), 55 (5 / L&D), or 70 thrust (70 / L&D), along with your choice of shaft size.

Take a look at all this: 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.

Cable-steer Foot Pedal:

Get wired to the water's edge with the Edge foot pedal! Features ultra-responsive steering and an ergonomic design, with more room for your foot and more precise speed control.

New Latch & Door Mount:

Edge's all-new mount is built with uncompromising strength, with an extruded, anodized aluminum arm running right down the center. It also features rock-solid stowing and a Latch & Door design for easy removal.

Weedless Wedge™ 2:

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.

New Directional Indicator:

NEW easy-to-read, illuminated Indicator leaves no doubt about where you're headed, so you can pay attention to fishing, not your motor.

Minn Kota® Riptide ST RT80 Bow-mount 24V 80 lb. Thrust Saltwater Trolling Motor

Item # WX2-181148

Non-Member $1,219.99 Buyer's Club Discount Applied at Checkout!

Add to Wishlist

Minn Kota® Riptide ST Bow-mount Saltwater Trolling Motor with Co-PilotTM.

You also get unequaled corrosion protection, plus battery-maximizing, power-conserving Digital Maximization™. It all comes powered by a beefy Weedless Wedge 2™ prop, and backed by Minn Kota's famous cool, quiet power. Take your pick of 55- (RT55), 80- (RT80), or 101-thrust power (RT101)... see the chart below for more details on the features and choices available.

Even more: Check out all the ways Co-Pilot can help you nab more fish:
  • Advanced Autopilot- simply point in the direction you want to go, keeps you on a GPS-perfect course while compensating for drift and wind
  • Copilot- control speed, steering, on / off, and high-speed bypass, all right from your remote! Frees you up to fish anywhere on the boat.
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.

Autopilot:

Constantly repositioning and readjusting your boat wastes valuable fishing time. That's why the patented Autopilot does the navigating for you! Lock Autopilot onto your desired heading, and it will automatically and continuously make adjustments to keep your boat moving in the right direction. Available on select models (see chart below).

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.

Innovative Stow and Deploy:

Easy in, easy out! That's the thinking behind the new mechanism. Balanced motor design makes stowing easy, and a master cut-off switch automatically turns off the power when stowed.
