How to determine the appropriate shaft length, thrust level and voltage for your boat


Lift Assist

Lift-Assist’s stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring makes stow and deploy easy. When you deploy, let go of your Riptide Fortrex and Lift-Assist will gradually guide it into the water – quickly, but without impact. And stowing your motor is 50% easier – as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate.

Mono Arm Design

That extruded, anodized aluminum arm doesn’t just look tough. It redefines tough. The Mono-Arm Design gives it ruggedness and strength that’s unmatched by any other motor on the water. And with its ingenious one-piece construction, Fortrex runs with less wear, longer life and quieter operation.

Minn Kota Mono Arm Design

Counter Tension Stabilizer

Utilizes an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor is stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque and years of silent operation.

Tilt / Extend Tiller

Tilts (up to 45°) and extends (up to 6") to give you maximum control.

Minn Kota Riptide Tilt Extend Tiller

Removable Bowguard 360

The Bowguard 360º breaks away on impact from any direction and automatically resets itself - protecting your motor and your boat, so you can fish without worry. Plus, its dual bearing system eliminates noise, and it's easily removable.

Saltwater Advantage

Advanced Corrosion Protection: Riptide's premium-grade alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armor plating & a durable, saltwater-resistant powder coat paint.  With layers of protection, the elements are truly protected. 

Fully Encapsulated Electronics: Marine-grade urethane fully encapsulates Riptide control boards to protect the electronic circuitry. All electrical connections are sealed with waterproof heat-shrink tubing to keep saltwater out.

Sacrificial Anode: We use metals that are properly balanced & a composite shaft to ward off galvanic corrosion. So the only piece left for saltwater to attack is this little zinc anode, which absorbs corrosion so the rest of the motor doesn't have to.

Minn Kota Saltwater Advantage

Minn Kota Advantage

Indestructible Composite Shaft: Pound for pound, Minn Kota's composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode. That’s why they’re confident enough to guarantee it for life.  If Minn Kota could guarantee it for longer than a lifetime, they would. 

Cool, Quiet, Power: Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. The extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And the unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they’ll never hear you coming. 

2-Year Warranty: This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty.
