Let’s talk arm strength. Specifically, one made of extruded, anodized aluminum that provides unmatched ruggedness. That’s Mono-Arm Design, only on Fortrex. Backed with solid one-piece construction, it helps Fortrex run with less wear, longer life and quieter operation.
Fortrex’s patented Lift-Assist design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, making it as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate. Features a stainless steel, nitrogen gas-charged spring.
Illuminated Directional Indicator

Removable Bowguard 360°
This rugged mount breaks away on impact from any angle and automatically resets itself, so your fishing isn’t interrupted by underwater hazards. Plus, its dual bearing system eliminates noise and the entire mount is easily removable.
Fortrex™ Foot Control
The Fortrex features an ultra-responsive foot pedal that gives you total control. Available in all listed thrust levels and shaft lengths.
Universal Sonar 2
Built-in Protection for Interference-Free Sonar Performance.
Keep your transducer and wiring completely concealed and protected with the streamlined design of Universal Sonar 2. It runs all components through the motor’s shaft, with shielded connectors that virtually eliminate interference. So you get crystal-clear sonar performance with no rigging and no messy, exposed wires. Suits all Humminbird units with single and dual beam capabilites.
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.
Weedless Wedge 2
Our Most Powerful Prop.
Weedless Wedge™ props push and power through weeds and thick stuff without draining your battery by chopping and hacking. It’s a legendary Roland Martin design, improved with swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
Indestructible Composite Shaft
Guaranteed for Life.
If we could offer a longer guarantee than “lifetime,” we would. Our ultra-high-yield composite shafts are pound for pound stronger than stainless steel, virtually indestructible and can flex on impact before returning to their original position. They won’t kink, break, rust or corrode. We guarantee it.
Cool, Quiet Power
Every Minn Kota Gives You the Drop on Fish.
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, which extends battery power and motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise.
