Minn Kota Riptide Transom 45 - high reliability

list icon

The housing of the motor is made of unbreakable plastic and the shaft of strong glass fiber. Also UV-resistant.

list icon

Motor can be tilted up to 90° and can therefore be quickly folded up in case of danger of ground contact.

list icon

Robust plastic holder for the transom. Thanks to the composite structures, it is particularly light and even stronger than conventional steel brackets. In the event of a collision, the material gently absorbs the impact instead of bending or breaking.

list icon

Unbeatable price-performance ratio of the Minn Kota Riptide Transom engines.

Thanks to the tilting device, the engines are especially suitable for children on board.


Comfort of the Riptide Transom 45 for salt water

list icon

Including battery indicator on motor: Switch off the motor, wait briefly and press button. Now you can see the charge level of your battery.

list icon

Full Charge | Good | Low | Recharge

list icon

Reduced blockages thanks to the Power Propeller. The electric motor can also get underwater through dense vegetation.

list icon

15 cm telescopic tiller provides comfortable control. In addition, the steering can be adjusted or blocked via a locking screw.

list icon

Tiltable tiller. The tiller can be tilted 45° upwards or downwards for better control. Maneuvering in a standing position or with a high tail in a sitting position is much easier, as is transportation.

list icon

The Riptide Transom has the advantage over the Endura models of a one-hand folding mechanism. While folding up, one hand can be used for fishing. Simply reach under the motorhead and pull up.

Minn Kota engines are not entirely maintenance-free. From time to time the carbon brushes and the sacrificial anodes have to be replaced.


Technical features of the Riptide Transom 45

list icon

Stepless speed control: By precisely controlling the speed, the Riptide Transom provides better control over the boat.

list icon

Instead of the 5 forward gears or the 3 reverse gears, the continuously variable control leads to higher efficiency and lower power consumption.

list icon

The models require less maintenance in saltwater than all other models. The screws are made of stainless steel and the zinc anode protects against electrolysis in saltwater. The electronics are also embedded in an insulating compound to protect against corrosion.

list icon

Digital Maximizer" function - Up to 5x longer range at reduced speed. The power consumption is minimized compared to other models with switching steps and in some cases, it extends the range enormously.

list icon

Height-adjustable immersion depth for optimal propulsion of your boat.

list icon

Quieter and cooler than comparable models thanks to Turbomagnet technology. Especially when fishing, fish are less frightened away by the engine.

list icon

Long battery life and motor life thanks to efficient motor technology.


Use of the Minn Kota Riptide Transom 45

The motors are mainly suitable for use in saltwater. Especially for inflatable boats, canoes, rowing boats, or small sailing boats.

The motors are much less damaged by saltwater. Minn Kota has designed the special riptide models, especially for this purpose. Thanks to the quiet and low-vibration ride, the motors are especially popular with anglers.

The Riptide Transom series for salt water

The Riptide Transom series from Minn Kota is one of the successors of the Traxxis series and is specially designed for use in saltwater. The motors are therefore the perfect extension of the Traxxis motors and are enjoying increasing popularity. The motors without Switch Control (SC) have all the features of the C2 plus the "Digital Maximizer" and the infinitely variable speed control. This model series is suitable for beginners in e-mobility on the water who value higher quality. Very reliable and durable at an attractive price.

Battery for the Riptide Transom 45

For the Minn Kota electric motors, we recommend AGM batteries, which have DeepCycle technology, i.e. can be discharged comparatively deep. Ordinary car and lead-acid batteries are not or only slightly suitable for the continuous operation of an electric motor. Here it is better to spend one euro more than to have to buy a new battery in the second season.

If you are on the road a lot, you might even want to consider a high-quality lithium-ion battery. These are significantly lighter, smaller and more durable than AGM batteries, but also more expensive. It is best to use only lithium batteries that have already proven themselves in combination with Minn Kota electric motors. Otherwise, there is a risk that the battery will damage the engine's control board. We are happy to help you with the selection and answer your questions!
