Minn Kota Riptide SF 80 Saltwater Bow-Mount Trolling Motor - 24v-80lb.-52"
Riptide SF Saltwater Bow Mount
Arm yourself with the ultimate weapon against saltwater. The all-new Riptide SF features fewer moving parts, tighter tolerances, advanced corrosion protection and our revolutionary new Mono-Arm. You get no-nonsense power, stealth operation and rugged, reliable performance - everything you need to put saltwater in its place.
Mono-Arm Design Sometimes, the simplest solution is best. In this case, it's a revolution. Riptide SF's innovative Mono-Arm Design features an extruded, anodized aluminum, structural beam that operates with no metal-to-metal contact and 75% less torsion. A single hinge point and rear pivot bearing with 20% more surface area deliver less wear, longer life, and quieter operation than traditional motor mounts.
Counter-Tension Stabilizer (CTS) CTS uses an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor's stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque and silent operation.
Lift-Assist Riptide SF's Lift-Assist design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, making it as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate. It features a stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring to get you in and out of the water with ease.
Removable Bowguard 360° Lifting the motor and bowguard off of the mount is now even easier on Riptide SF - just remove a single cap screw. The Bowguard 360'™ also features a dual bearing system that eliminates noise and allows for improved breakaways from any angle.
Quick-Lock Cam Depth Adjuster Change depths simply and securely with the Quick-Lock cam adjuster. It makes depth adjustment simple and locks in tight to keep your motor right where you want it.
Tilt/Extend Tiller Get the best of both worlds on your hand control motor with the new Tilt/Extend Tiller. It can both tilt (up to 45°) and extend (6") to fit the way you fish.
Push-to-Test Battery Gauge - Riptide SF Get an instant "state of charge" with this easy-to-read gauge.
Digital Maximizer Digital Maximizer™ controls and optimizes power to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. You'll stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge.
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 saltwater's 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 it's all done, you're 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
Sacrificial Anode Galvanic corrosion occurs when two dissimilar metals come into electrical contact through saltwater. Riptide fights back with a sacrificial zinc anode, a composite shaft and properly balanced materials that are close in electrical potential. The result is a motor that's completely protected from saltwater's destructive forces.
