Minn Kota Riptide SF Bow Mount Trolling Motor


Minn Kota’s Riptide SF bow mount trolling motor was built using the KISS (you know, Keep it Simple…) theory. Less moving parts = greater reliability. The Riptide SF is mounted via Minn Kota’s Mono Arm mount design built out of extruded aluminum for strength and saltwater durability. Built in lift-assist makes this no-nonsense trolling motor much easier to deploy thanks to the gas strut which lifts the bulk of the weight for you.

Other features of the Riptide SF include Bowguard 360 with dual bearings and a counter-tension stabilizer with translate to solid mounting, reduced play even when stowed and quieter operation. You can also check the status of our trolling batteries via a button on the control unit, and no doubt be surprised by how much you have left thanks to the Digital Maximizer which extends the battery life and reduces heat.
