i-Pilot® Wireless GPS Trolling System
Don’t waste another minute positioning your boat. i-Pilot® uses GPS technology to control your trolling motor for you so you can focus on fishing. It can lock onto a productive fishing spot and keep you there, remember a successful path, optimise your bait presentation with cruise control, and more. All with wireless control, GPS accuracy and the mission of making you better at what you love to do: catch fish.
N.B. On i-Pilot® SP motors you will not have the option to fit a foot pedal
The Riptide SP deploy-assist lever gets you 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.

Advanced Corrosion Protection
Impervious to Saltwater’s Corrosive Effects.
We build each Riptide with premium-grade marine alloys that are impervious to saltwater’s corrosive effects. 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 polyester powder coat paint. When it’s all done, you’re left with unequaled corrosion protection
Weedless Wedge 2
Only a Minn Kota can push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. We’ve improved on the legendary Roland Martin design with swept-back, red blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
Fully Encapsulated Electronics
An Impenetrable Barrier Against Saltwater. 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 keep saltwater out, no matter what.
Fights Galvanic Corrosion.
Riptide is armed with an array of features to fight galvanic corrosion, which occurs when two dissimilar metals come into electrical contact through saltwater. First, we use properly balanced materials that are close in electrical potential. Couple that with a composite shaft and patented sacrificial zinc anode and the result is a motor that is completely protected from the destructive forces of saltwater.
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 and impervious to saltwater corrosion. They’re virtually indestructible, and 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, because in saltwater, silence is golden.
