Riptide ST 80/i-Pilot Link
We put Riptide ST to the test, because we know you will. After thousands of hours of research and field testing, we made it quiet enough to give you the drop on fish and tough enough to withstand the most extreme conditions. We know saltwater anglers never turn down a challenge. As it turns out, neither do we.
Riptide ST Stow/Deploy Lever
Easy in. Easy out. Everyday. Thats the thought behind the innovative stow/deploy mechanism on Riptide ST. The balanced motor design makes stowing easy, and a master cut-off switch automatically turns off the motor when stowed.

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 motors are impervious to saltwaters 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 its all done, youre left with unequaled corrosion protection.
Full Encapsulated Electronics
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 form an impregnable barrier against saltwater.
Galvanic corrosion occurs when two dissimilar metals come into electrical contact through saltwater. Riptide fights back with a patented sacrificial zinc anode, a composite shaft and properly balanced materials that are close in electrical potential. The result is a motor thats completely protected from saltwaters destructive forces.
Indestructible Composite Shaft - Guaranteed For Life!
Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and wont break, kink or corrode. Thats why were confident enough to make it the only trolling motor shaft thats guaranteed for life.
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, theyll never hear you coming.
This motor is backed up with Minn Kotas two-year warranty.
