ARIES, a supplier of truck, Jeep, SUV and CUV accessories, has released an all-new high-end running board designed for today’s trucks and SUVs. 

According to a press release, AscentStep 5 1/2-inch running boards feature a sleek profile, dual-construction step pads, a durable build and a no-drill installation using the VersaTrac mounting system. 

ARIES AscentSteps provide a modern accent for modern trucks, featuring a teardrop-shaped profile and seamlessly blended, rounded end caps. AscentStep running boards also have highly unique step pads with a two-part construction. 

The step pads are made up of a polyethylene tread that is overlaid by a stainless steel plate. The poly treads protrude through the metal overlay, providing safe, non-skid traction and an aggressive look. The stainless steel plates ensure long-lasting corrosion resistance in spite of frequent foot traffic.

To ensure excellent rigidity and weather-resistance, AscentSteps are made from powder-coated carbon steel. The powder coat is a durable carbide black finish that offers resistance to rust, chipping and UV damage.
