Edge lets you step right up to treacherous stump fields, tangled weed beds, or punishing wind and waves. Big challenges like those usually mean bigger fish. And when you've got the unrelenting, rugged construction of Edge, you've got the power to rise to the occasion. The updated motor mount on the Edge features an extruded upper arm made from marine-grade anodized aluminum that is built for years of trouble-free use. The Edge motor also utilizes a Latch & Door mounting system for easy removal of the motor for security and storage. The ultra-responsive foot pedal is easier to operate with more room for your foot and more exact speed control. Five-speed motor puts you in command with forward, reverse, and multiple speed settings. Pound for pound, Minn Kota's composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode. Finally, nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And the unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise.
