Minn Kota Riptide 55 is the perfect salt water electric outboard. With 5 forward speeds and 3 reverse speeds delivering up to 55 pounds of thrust as well as superior corrosion protection the Riptide is designed for lasting performance. The controls and tiller are easy to use and ergonomically designed.
RIPTIDE TRANSOM Standard Features:
- Telescoping Handle: Six-inch telescoping handle provides comfortable, easy steering.
- Speed Control 5 Fwd/3 Rev: Provides five forward speed settings & three reverse speed settings to easily choose the speed you need for simple, intuitive control that puts you in command.
- Push-to-Test Battery Meter – This convenient battery meter tells you how much battery life you have left – at the push of a button.
- Power Prop: Delivers extra power to help you push through heavy vegetation to get you where the fish are.
- Saltwater Advantage
- 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.
- 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. A unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise.
- 2-Year Warranty: This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty
