RIPTIDE SF Standard Features:
Lift-Assist�s stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring makes stow and deploy easy. When you deploy, let go of Fortrex and Lift-Assist will gradually guide it into the water � quickly, but without impact. And stowing your motor is 50% easier � as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate.
That extruded, anodized aluminum arm doesn�t just look tough. It redefines tough. The Mono-Arm Design gives it ruggedness and strength that�s unmatched by any other motor on the water. And with its ingenious one-piece construction, Fortrex runs with less wear, longer life and quieter operation.
Utilizes an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor is stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque and years of silent operation.
Tilts (up to 45�) and extends (up to 6") to give you maximum control.
REMOVABLE BOWGUARD 360�
The Bowguard 360�� breaks away on impact from any direction and automatically resets itself - protecting your motor and your boat, so you can fish without worry. Plus, its dual bearing system eliminates noise, and it's easily removable.
QUICK-LOCK CAM DEPTH ADJUSTER
This easy-to-use adjuster lets you change depths simply and securely, and it locks in tight to keep your motor right where you want it.
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.
PUSH-TO-TEST BATTERY METER
This convenient meter on Riptide SF tells you how much battery life you have left - at the push of a button.
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.
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.
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. If we could guarantee it for longer than a lifetime, we would.
Cool, Quiet, Power: Nothing runs cooler or more quietly 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. So quiet, they�ll never hear you coming.
2-Year Warranty: This motor is backed up with Minn Kota�s two-year warranty.
