Minn Kota has revamped their line of Saltwater trolling motors for 2017, bringing all new features to improve upon the already well built design.
The Riptide PowerDrive pushes 55 pounds of thrust through a 48 inch shaft. This model features the new 2017 i-Pilot system. The remote has been redesigned, giving a larger LCD screen, that’s fully viewable during daylight. The new remote also utilises bluetooth, allowing easy software updates via smartphones. Smartphones can now also give quick commands to the Riptide I-pilot, to allow quick changes in speed, steering, Spot-Lock, high-speed bypass, as well as access to the Advanced Auto-Pilot.
With the Weedless Wedge propellor the Minn Kota can push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. The Riptide is also made with premium-grade marine alloys that are impervious to saltwater’s corrosive effects and with a indestructible composite shaft, you are guaranteed this unit will be around for a long time.
The Minn Kota Riptide PowerDrive is easily stowed and deployed, via the deploy-assist lever, and with the Digital Maximizer, now offers up to 5x longer run time on a single charge.
