Minn Kota Riptide Pro Bow-Mount Motor
|Riptide Pro RT SF 80/BG|
With apologies to our freshwater friends – the physical demands of serious saltwater fishing are multiplied to the nth degree. Bigger water. Bigger fish. Temperatures that can wilt even the strongest of anglers. That’s why salty veterans are turning to our Riptide Pro. With exclusive Lift-Assist, it cuts the heavy lifting by 50%…making a long day on the water a cool breeze to handle.
Exclusive, patented design features a heavy-duty, gas-charged spring that cuts the weight of lifting your motor by 50%. Makes stowing and deploying as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate. Saves energy and exertion over the course of a long day on the water. Smooth, easy and extra quiet.
Exclusive, patented feature breaks away on impact from any angle, protecting your motor, shaft and boat. Provides uninterrupted fishing as the motor will automatically reset itself. No more leaning over the bow of your boat on your hands and knees wrestling with resetting your motor. Easily detaches for added convenience.
Digital Maximizer. Up to five times longer run time on a single charge.
Conventional speed coil technology wastes energy by delivering a constant, steady flow of power to the motor – regardless of the speed setting – resulting in wasted energy.
Pioneered in 1985, Minn Kota’s innovative Maximizer technology delivers the precise amount of power needed at any setting, along with variable speed control. Now, our advanced, digital microprocessing optimizes draw to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. Get up to five times longer run time on a single charge.
Tilt Twist Tiller
The natural grip gives you the ultimate in hands-on control for speed and steering. Multi-position handle.
Advanced Corrosion Protection
Riptide features premium-grade marine alloys, including aluminum upper arms that are virtually impervious to oxidative corrosion (rust). Metals undergo a rigid multi-step cleaning process before being anodized or coated with a special zinc dichromate armor plating. All components are then finished with a 5-mil TGIC polyester, powder coat paint.
Fully Encapsulated Electronics
Riptide control boards (1) are fully encapsulated in marine-grade urethane (2) to protect the electronic circuitry. All electrical connections are sealed with liquid-tight heat shrink tubing to form an impregnable barrier against the destructive effects of saltwater
A patented sacrificial anode protects the motor from galvanic corrosion. Saltwater attacks the zinc anode (discretely located on the prop hub), which can be easily replaced when necessary. The result is better protection and longer motor life.
Cool, Quiet Power
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than Minn Kota. Extra large windings and commutators are used to dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power and longer motor life. 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
The standard of the industry since 1991! Pound for pound, our ultra high-yield composite material has been tested to be three times the strength of stainless steel. Virtually indestructible, it flexes on impact and then returns to its original position. Unlike stainless steel, will not kink, break, rust or corrode – guaranteed for life!
