BORN WITH ITS NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
