MOTOCRAFT. Minn Kota® Launches International Ultrex™ Trolling Motor at METS 2017

Minn Kota® introduces outside of North America the trolling motor anglers have only dreamed of - a hybrid that merges the body of a Fortrex® with the brains of i-Pilot®, complete with Spot-Lock electronic GPS anchoring and more.


Minn Kota’s Ultrex™ gives anglers the control and responsiveness of a Fortrex®, plus effortless Power Steering and i-Pilot® features, like Spot-Lock. Paired with Steering Lock, which allows you to take your foot off the pedal without losing motor heading, Ultrex™ will change the way you fish.


“We continue to set the bar high for break-through innovations to help anglers catch fish. Ultrex™ is no exception,” says Brad Henry, Minn Kota® Brand Manager. “We’ve combined the reliability and responsive ‘wired-to-the-water’ feel of our tournament-proven Fortrex® with the GPS technologies of i-Pilot, i-Pilot Link, and Spot-Lock electronic anchoring. It’s the best of both worlds.”


Ultrex™ Features
• Power Steering: Ultra-responsive control and reduces steering effort and foot fatigue
• Steering Lock: Take your foot off the pedal and keep your motor heading
• Ultrex™ Foot Pedal: Power steering with Spot-Lock and AutoPilot Buttons
• Lift-Assist: Cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half
• Coated stainless steel stow/deploy adjustable cable and handle
• Bluetooth®-enabled i-Pilot® or i-Pilot® Link
• Digital Maximizer: Controls battery power draw to keep you on the water longer
• Universal Sonar 2
• Indestructible Composite Shaft
