Details & Specs

Minn Kota® Fortrex Trolling Motors. Trolling performance, redefined.

You might notice perfectly alive fish floating belly-up right alongside your boat. No, there's nothing wrong with them... they've simply given up the will to fight back. And who could blame them? After all, when you're running a Fortrex Motor by Minn Kota®, you've made it clear that you're not a man who messes around with second-rate gear.

With the Fortrex, you're getting all the cool, quiet power Minn Kota's famous for, plus handy features veteran sorts like you will certainly appreciate. Like the removable Bowguard 360° Mount that makes it easy to dismount the Motor when your day is done. Or the patented Lift-Assist™ that cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, so you save your strength for fightin' monsters. And so much more.

All are variable speed. Take a look below for all the info on this top-tier Troller.

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.

Removable Bowguard 360° Mount: Dismounting the Motor is now easier than ever... just remove a single cap screw! Patented Bowguard 360° also features a dual-bearing system that eliminates noise and allows for improved break-away at any angle.

Mono-Arm Mount Arm: Fortrex's innovative Mono-Arm design features a super-strong anodized aluminum beam... the result is 75% less torsion. The result? Less wear, longer life, and quieter operation.

Lift-Assist: Fortrex's patented Lift-Assist design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, making it as easy as lifting your truck's tailgate. Features a corrosion-resistant, nitrogen gas-charged spring.

Directional Indicator: 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 SP Saltwater Trolling Motors with UPDATED i - PilotTM. GPS precision. Saltwater toughness. Minn Kota durability.

Featuring the updated i-Pilot™, now with more Spot-Lock locations, more recordable tracks, and newer, better remote control! i-Pilot automatically controls and steers your boat using GPS technology . Lock onto a fishing spot - and stay there. Record a successful path, then retrace it later. Set cruise control for the perfect bait presentation. All wireless, all with GPS accuracy, all with the sole purpose of making you a better angler at the push of a button.

But i-Pilot's only part of the package. You also get the convenience of electric-steer 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.

Read on for more details: Check out all the ways the updated i-Pilot can help you:
  • Record a Track - simply push the record button and fish along your desired course, and i-Pilot stores the track... up to 6 tracks total. When you want to retrieve the course, the playback function automatically guides your boat along the track.
  • Spot-Lock - Choose up to 6 separate spots for i-Pilot to remember. When you want to return, simply press the button, and the i-Pilot will take you there from up to a quarter mile away.
  • Cruise Control - gives you unparalleled bait presentation by maintaining the perfect speed you choose. Allows you to adjust your speed in 1/ 10 MPH increments.
  • Advanced Autopilot - simply point the Terrova in the direction you want to go, and the i-Pilot keeps you on a GPS-perfect course while compensating for drift and wind.
  • Copilot - the new and improved i-Pilot remote features a 20% larger LCD screen and high-vis buttons. Compact, watertight and easy to use, the Copilot remote gives you instant feedback on active functions, speed, prop on / off status, GPS signal strength and more.
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.
