  • Saltwater-engineered, premium-grade marine alloys--virtually impervious to rust
  • Indestructible composite shaft--pound for pound, stronger than stainless steel
  • Fully encapsulated electronics--control boards are fully encapsulated in marine-grade urethane
  • Sacrificial anode--patented, replaceable anode protects metallic components from galvanic corrosion  
Minn Kota Riptide Transom-Mount Trolling Motors offer advanced corrosion protection. Premium-grade alloys are impervious to rust. Metals undergo a rigid multi-step cleaning process before being anodized or coated with special zinc dichromate armor plating. All components are then finished with a 5-mil TGIC polyester powder coat paint. All models except SC (5/3 speed) models feature Digital Maximizer™ Technology, which allows up to five times longer run time on a single charge. All Riptide trolling motors feature a sacrificial zinc anode to fight galvanic corrosion. The replaceable anode is conveniently mounted on the prop hub for better protection and longer motor life. All Riptide motors feature a manufacturer's 2-year limted warranty.
Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good Motor / Bad Mount Needed motor fast and it had the basics I was looking for. Tried to buy MotorGuide, can't remember what stopped me. Decided to disreguard the few bad reviews on the mount when I bought it. Ran great first time (weekend) out. Second time at the same water, a calm, private, freshwater lake - motor began to shake from midrange to full power and may as well have been held onto the stern by a bowl of jello. We hit nothing and I can be a real stickler about taking care of my stuff. Now I have to chase warranty headaches and when they put the same mount on again, how is it not going to do the same thing? The motor was just fresh out of the wrapper as it was. I hope Minn Kota's happy. I feel a little better after writing this, but not 400$ better. Motor and variable speed control were great, the battery lasted well, but the mount can't hold it. Get a MotorGuide. September 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great TM Great tm used on a 12ft canoe transom mount, fair speed and good power for moving through current. March 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by riiptide 101 every time I used this motor something broke.first the plastic handle broke when I was attaching it to the boat and finaly the whole motor broke loose from the mount almost pulling a friend overboard the mount has a lot of plastic and is to weak for the weight and strength of the motor , the motor seems well built and solid but the mount is very poor. I would not buy the 101 the other might not b as heavy im going to try the motorguid 105. April 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by minn kota riptide saltwater trolling motor good motor so far only used it once but it was strong tide motor had good thrust and used little battery my guess is hour and half still had three quarters battery life left April 27, 2011

Is it difficult to separate the controller from the motor? I'd like to mount the motor on the rudder bracket (using the existing foot pedals to control the direction) and adjust the motor speed from the center of the kayak.
