Get optimized saltwater performance with Riptide SP’s electric steer control, deploy-assist lever, and a host of features that set the standards for power, control and reliability.
When you’re on the water, the last thing you want to worry about is your trolling motor. You need to trust it to handle any condition and deliver you to that next trophy fish. Riptide SP does just that. Saltwater-engineered design and proven Minn Kota technology puts more power and greater control at your fingertips, and makes worrying about your motor a distant memory.
Deploy-Assist Lever
Riptide SP’s deploy-assist lever puts you in motion and in pursuit of fish quicky and easily. Simply depress the lever to deploy the motor and you’re ready to go. When it’s time to move, it stows easily and securely – ready for action again as soon as you are.
CoPilot
Go remote with standard CoPilot.

Give yourself the freedom to operate from anywhere on the boat with the CoPilot™ remote control, now standard on Riptide SP. It’s total control in the palm of your hand.

AutoPilot
Trade up to Minn Kota’s patented AutoPilot navigation system. Spend less time steering your boat and more time catching fish. Simply put, AutoPilot keeps your pursuit of trophy fish headed in the right direction. Available on select models only.

Digital Maximizer
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.

Optional Foot Pedals
Optional foot pedals offer precise speed adjustment, right/left steering, and both momentary and constant On/Off. Industry-leading IP68 waterproof rating. Available in corded or wireless models.

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.

Sacrificial Anode
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!

Just let me start off, this trolling motor rocks! I started off with trollin' tabs by Lenco and they were nice for maneuvering my boat around but when it came to fishing the shore line with any type of wind you could forget it. I bought the Riptide and I honestly couldn't even imagine fishing without now. I was kind of worried about using a remote control to maneuver the motor but it is extremely smooth and the inputs are quick. I bought the motor with the i-pilot and this system I am so thankful for. If there is a certain track that I fish often I can record that track and the motor will work off GPS satallites to allow me to follow that track as many times as I want without having to touch the remote. Not to mention I can control the speed in tenths of a mile an hour and set it on cruise. I think the greatest feature is the electronic anchor function. I would be fishing some bridge pylings in some very stiff current as the tide was going out and I hit the anchor button and my boat stayed within a 4 ft radius of that spot I set the "anchor." It was great not having to throw out an anchor and line and worry about position. Even with a current the motor had no problems keeping my boat in one spot. Overall, having this motor allows you to forget about time spent controlling a motor and allows you more time to fish. I HIGHLY recommend this trolling motor to anyone who is even remotely thinking about getting one. You will NOT be disappointed.

Does Minn Kota SP55 fit the RTA-19 quick release bracket?
1 Answers
No it will not fit. For the SP motors, you need to use the RTA-17 quick release bracket.
