The new MotorGuide wireless Xi5 provides reliable, quiet power for both fresh- and salwater anglers. Freshwater models come standard with a wireless foot pedal featuring intuitive heel-toe steering control. Controls are positioned to provide easy trolling-motor navigation that allows the angler to focus on fishing. Saltwater models come standard with an easy-to-use wireless handheld remote. The remote provides a lightweight and convenient method to precisely control the trolling motor. Both the foot pedal and handheld remote are available as optional accessories for users who prefer multiple sources of control. The motor has a fully encapsulated digital electronics, stainless steel hardware, and a virtually indestructible composite shaft. From its weedless propeller, to the ultra-quiet steering motor and solid locking linkages, the Xi5 is one quiet trolling motor. Available in 12-, 24- and 36-volt models with thrusts ranging from 55 pounds to 105 pounds in freshwater and saltwater versions in a variety of shaft lengths.
