Advanced Corrosion Protection
Riptide motors are resistant to saltwater's corrosion impacts on premium-grade marine alloys and aluminum upper arms. Metals undergo an inflexible multi-step cleaning process before being anodized or coated with a special zinc dichromate armor plating. All parts are finished with a tough 5-mil TGIC polyester powder coat paint. When it's set, you're left with unmatched corrosion protection.
Fully Encapsulated Electronics
Marine-grade urethane completely encapsulates Riptide control boards to ensure the electronic hardware. Additionally, all electrical connections are sealed with liquid-tight heat contract tubing to shape a secure barrier against saltwater.
Galvanic corrosion happens when two different metals come into electrical contact through saltwater. Riptide retaliates with a sacrificial zinc anode, a composite shaft, and appropriately adjusted materials close to electrical potential. The outcome is a shielded motor from saltwater's destructive forces.
Indestructible Composite Shaft - Guaranteed For Life!
Pound for pound, the composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won't break, bend or corrode. That is why it is the only trolling motor shaft that is guaranteed for life. To add, the motor is backed up with Minn Kota's two-year warranty.
Shaft length is an extremely important parameter to get maximum performance. Its adjustable shaft length features allow ease of use for uninterrupted fishing.
