Arm yourself with the ultimate weapon against saltwater! The Riptide SF features fewer moving parts, tighter tolerances, and the revolutionary Mono Mount Arm for unwavering toughness.
While features like an easy-to-use cam-lock depth adjuster make day-to-day use easier, the Riptide SF doesn't give up an ounce of power, silence, or rugged reliability. It's everything you need to put the destructive effects of saltwater in its place.
The Riptide SF is available in 80- (RT80) or 101-thrust power (RT101), in your choice 52" or 62" shaft length. Variable speed.

Minn Kota's famous cool, quiet power:
Larger brushes, windings and commutators generate less heat, less noise and run cooler-- extending motor life and conserving battery power. You get greater sustained thrust and more time on the water. A unique bearing system produces low rpms / high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise-so quiet they'll never hear you coming.
Indestructible Composite Shaft:
Guaranteed by Minn Kota for life! Pound for pound, it's stronger than steel. Shaft flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode.
Weedless Wedge 2 Prop:
Only Minn Kota®'s Weedless Wedge 2 Prop can push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. They've improved the legendary design with swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
Instead of wasting energy with a constant flow of power, Digital Maximizer delivers only what's needed... a precise amount of power at any setting, along with variable speed control. The bottom line is more time on the water for you.
Removable Bowguard 360° Mount:
Dismounting the Motor is now easier than ever... just remove a single cap screw! Patented Bowguard 360° also features a dual-bearing system that eliminates noise and allows for improved break-away at any angle.
The Riptide SF features Minn Kota's Tilt / Extend Tiller... it tilts up 45° and extends up to 6" to suit any style of fishing!
Patented Lift-Assist design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, making it as easy as lifting your truck's tailgate. Features a corrosion-resistant, nitrogen gas-charged spring.
