Details & Specs

Minn Kota® Riptide SE Saltwater Trolling Motor. Don't let the size fool you.

With a compact mount that delivers in the clutch, Riptide SE lets you take advantage of Minn Kota®'s trusted saltwater performance without sacrificing valuable deck space! Perfect for technical skiffs and flats boats, SE proves time and again that size isn't everything.

Couple that compact performance with power-stretching Digital Maximizer™ technology and one of the strongest shaft / prop combinations in the biz, and you're staring down the recipe for surefire saltwater success. 

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. 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.

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.

Quick-lock Cam Depth Adjuster:

Change depths simply and securely with Riptide SE's Cam Adjuster. Locks in tight to keep the Motor where you want it.

Hand-control:

The Riptide SF features Minn Kota's Tilt / Extend Tiller... it tilts up 45° and extends up to 6" to suit any style of fishing!

Minn Kota® Edge L&D Hand-control Trolling Motors. The pinnacle of power and performance in a hand-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 hand 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, simple as that! Take your pick of 45- (45 / L&D) or 55-thrust (55 / L&D) Motor. The 45 / L&D features a 45" shaft. 12-volt, 5/3-speed.

Here's the technology behind the Edge: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.

NEW Latch & Door Mount:

Edge's New for 2011 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.
