ARIES announced this week the launch of an all-new running board designed with high-end style in mind.
AscentStep 5-1/2” running boards feature a sleek profile, unique dual-construction step pads, a highly durable build and a no-drill installation using the VersaTrac mounting system.
ARIES AscentSteps are engineered with a teardrop-shaped profile and seamlessly blended, rounded end caps that’s intended to set them apart from other similar oval side steps.
AscentStep running boards offer unique step pads with a two-part construction. The pads are made of a polyethylene tread overlaid by a stainless steel plate. The poly treads protrude through the metal overlay, providing non-skid traction and an aggressive look.
AscentSteps are made from powder-coated carbon steel. The powder coat is a durable carbide black finish that resists rust, chipping and UV damage.
ARIES AscentSteps join a growing list of running boards and side steps that feature the VersaTrac system. VersaTrac is a mounting system introduced by ARIES that uses vehicle-specific brackets that require no drilling or modifications. With the brackets installed, any running boards or side steps with the VersaTrac system can be attached. This allows for more customization opportunities and makes inventory easier for dealers.
Other side step options with the VersaTrac system include ARIES AdvantEDGE side bars, ARIES RidgeStep running boards and LUVERNE SlimGrip running boards. VersaTrac bracket covers are also available to help provide the running boards with a more finished and fuller look on the vehicle.
