Riptide ST Stow/Deploy Lever
Easi in. Easy out. Everyday. That’s the thought behind the innovative stow/deploy mechanism on Riptide ST. The balanced motor design makes stowing easy, and a master cut-off switch automatically turns off the motor when stowed.

i-Pilot Link Accessory for Riptide ST (pre-installed on select models or as an add-on accessory)
i-Pilot Link allows Riptide ST to communicate with your Humminbird fishfinder and LakeMaster digital GPS maps for unprecedented navigation control. Using your Humminbird or the full-color LCD screen on the Link remote, choose where you want to go. Then, your ST will take you there automatically. You can store and return to waypoints, spots and paths; follow depth contours; lock on to a spot; and more. All with integrated, automatic GPS power.

i-Pilot Accessory for Riptide ST (pre-installed on select models or as an add-on accessory)
i-Pilot frees you up to focus on fishing. It uses GPS technology to remember paths and fishing spots on the water, activate cruise control, and give you command of speed, steering and Advanced AutoPilot.

CoPilot for Riptide ST
Fish from anywhere on the boat with CoPilot. Only the Riptide ST's wireless CoPilot lets you activate AutoPilot or reach maximum power at the push of a button. You can also control speed, steering and prop on/off from anywhere on the boat. CoPilot can be mounted on your lanyard, rod or wrist for easy access.

Digital AutoPilot (select models)
Digitally controlled AutoPilot locks onto any heading you choose and delivers you there. Infinitely variable steering adjustments provide smoother course corrections and tighter heading accuracy against wind, waves and current. Included on select models. Also available as an add-on accessory.

Digital Maximizer
Digital Maximizer controls and optimizes power to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. You'll stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge.

Riptide ST Foot Pedal (optional)
Waterproof, low-profile electric steer foot pedal lets you take precise control with less than one degree of steering resolution. Features an IP68 waterproof rating. Sold separately.

Weedless Wedge 2 Prop
Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Weedless Wedge 2 features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.

Advanced Corrosion Protection
Riptide motors are impervious to saltwater's corrosive effects, thanks to premium-grade marine alloys and aluminum upper arms. 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 durable 5-mil TGIC polyester, powder coat paint. When it's all done, you're left with unequaled corrosion protection.

Fully Encapsulated Electronics
Marine-grade urethane fully encapsulates Riptide control boards to protect the electronic circuitry. Also, all electrical connections are sealed with liquid-tight heat shrink tubing to form an impregnable barrier against saltwater.

Sacrificial Anode
Galvanic corrosion occurs when two dissimilar metals come into electrical contact through saltwater. Riptide fights back with a patented sacrificial zinc anode, a composite shaft and properly balanced materials that are close in electrical potential. The result is a motor that’s completely protected from saltwater’s destructive forces.

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
Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won't break, kink or corrode. That's why Minn Kota is confident enough to make it the only trolling motor shaft that's guaranteed for life.

Two-Year Warranty
Riptide ST is backed up with Minn Kota's two-year warranty.
