Why turn fishing into rocket science? MotorGuide's Xi5 Trolling Motor makes wireless control simple. Right out of the box, the wireless foot pedal provides outstanding motor control from anywhere on the boat. The intuitive, pro-style "heel-toe" operation controls steering that's extremely quiet, precise and 50% faster than the competition. Digital variable speed control enables exceptional low-speed trolling capability and a longer run time.
The new composite shaft can take on any obstruction that gets in its way. It'll bend, but won't break. That's why it's backed with a lifetime warranty. And powerful dual blade propeller offers maximum power and weed-busting toughness. From its ball bearings that reduce friction and wear, to custom seals that keep water and dust out, to an extra-rigid shaft support tube—the Xi5 steering transmission delivers dependable and quiet performance. And the high-efficiency electronics are fully encapsulated in a high-tech coating, making them impervious to water and dust. There's also a protection circuit that prevents lower unit damage if the prop is stalled.
Next-Gen Digital Technology
MotorGuide's digital technology features durable cooler-running power electronics that are 50% more efficient. They also capture and store energy that's typically lost as heat. This improved efficiency means longer run times and fewer battery charges. Digital speed control delivers power, smoothly and incrementally, at the precise level needed by the operator.
The Xi5 uses LED lights in the controller, so anglers can quickly check the status of four key functions in any light condition. The battery power indicator uses different colored lights to show three levels of battery life in real time.
An improved low-profile mount is all about form and function. The base uses anodized aluminum to prevent corrosion. The hardware components are stainless steel throughout, including the linkage that's built to be extra tough. The unique stow and deploy mechanism aligns and guides the motor into the stowed position and secures it in place. For added safety, a secondary lock prevents unintentional deployment and potential damage.
