i-Pilot® Wireless GPS Trolling System
i-Pilot® frees you up to focus on fishing. It uses GPS technology to remember paths and fishing spots on the water, activate cruise control, and give you command of speed, steering and Advanced AutoPilot™.
Stow. Deploy. Repeat.
Easy in. Easy out. Everyday. That’s the thought behind Riptide® ST’s innovative stow/deploy mechanism. The balanced motor design makes stowing easy, and a master cut-off switch automatically turns off the power when stowed.

Bigger boats can now take advantage of the i-Pilot’s GPS Spot-Lock function. Forget anchoring offshore, let Minn Kota® hold your boat in position or steer your favourite troll run while you catch fish.

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.
