Minn Kota Riptide PowerDrive 55 Trolling Motor w/i-Pilot & Bluetooth - No Foot Pedal Included - 12V-55lb-48"
BORN WITH ITS NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE.
Riptide PowerDrive has been counted on for years by saltwater anglers who want reliable performance with smart boat control features. So naturally, we just made it better. A tougher, sleeker new mount houses an arsenal of innovative options. Nobody outworks a Riptide.
Redesigned Mount & Aesthetics
Riptide PowerDrive has been redesigned with new technology, and remodeled to handle the workload that goes along with it - giving you a stronger mount and bigger brains in a sleeker package.
Boat positioning becomes automatic with the revolutionary, GPS-powered i-Pilot. Set Spot-Locks, record paths, control speed and steering, and more, all on a redesigned remote that has a 33% larger screen, and the ability to communicate via Bluetooth. New i-Pilot puts more options and easier operation at your fingertips, including reinvented Spot-Lock -the most accurate electronic GPS anchor ever.
i-Pilot Phone App
Bluetooth communication allows new i-Pilot to pair with your smartphone, allowing for easy software updates and quick command of speed, steering, Spot-Lock, high speed bypass, and Advanced AutoPilot.
Riptide PowerDrive's Deploy-Assist lever lets you get in and out of the water without breaking a sweat. Depress the lever to deploy. And when it's time to move, it stows easily and securely.
Push-to-Test Battery Meter
The push-to-test battery meter on Riptide PowerDrive gives you an instant "state of charge" reading at the push of a button, so you can see just how much longer you have on the water.
Motors with Digital Maximizer provide up to five times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any energy. These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power, while conserving your battery - extending your time on the water.
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.
Advantage Minn Kota
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 we're confident enough to guarantee it for life.
Cool, Quiet, Power:Nothing runs cooler or quieter than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise.
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.
This motor is backed up with Minn Kota_s two-year warranty.
