The Ascent canopy offers a raft of standard features, including fully-integrated central locking and push-button window switches, and is pitched at those who live an active lifestyle and want their vehicle to look just as good off-road as it does in the parking lot.
REMOTE CENTRAL LOCKING
Ascent’s electronic latching comes with the convenience of remote central locking. Via the vehicle’s key fob, all of the canopy’s latches will lock or unlock simultaneously with the vehicle’s doors. Additionally, working seamlessly with the vehicle’s locking system, if the vehicle is unlocked and the doors have not been opened, the Ascent canopy will auto-lock for the peace- of-mind of complete autonomous security.
If the vehicle’s keys/remote are lost or the battery goes flat, the Ascent’s manual key override located on the rear door allows access to the tub.
A yellow anti-entrapment dial allows the rear door to be locked or unlocked from within the canopy itself.
The Ascent canopy features lift-up windows to allow for easier access to the back of the utility, with the window opening self-supported by gas struts.
To ensure there’s a solution to suit a variety of different needs, an optional Vent Catch is available and allows for a lift-up window to be adjusted between lift-up and pop-out position!
HIGH-FLOW CANOPY VENT
The slimline, high-flow canopy vent is designed to reduce dust ingress. With the open vent facing the front of the vehicle, the canopy’s interior is pressurised; preventing dust from entering from the rear door or tailgate.
Additionally, the design allows the vent to be installed even with a roof rack or roof bars fitted.
PREMIUM WINDOWS WITH TINTED SAFETY GLASS
Double-curved rear door and side windows with frameless, tinted safety glass rated to international standards. A clear, lift-up front window provides unobstructed rear vision and the ability to clean the exterior surface of the vehicle cabin and canopy glass. 5mm thick with a dark grey tint (28% visual light transmission), the tinted safety glass ensures cargo is protected from UV penetration and adds security against prying eyes.
Additionally, the frameless glass ‘invisible’ hinge system means there are no visible holes for hinge hardware or strut brackets to complement the Ascent’s clean styling.

ASCENT WINDOW VENT CATCH
This optional accessory will allow for the flexibility of a lift-up window to be adjusted between a lift-up or pop-out position!
Improve airflow, even run a mains power cord back into the canopy while keeping the contents of your vehicle safe and secure with the catch’s central locking integration. Additionally, the vehicle can be driven with the window in pop-out position.
WEIGHT RATINGS — DYNAMIC AND STATIC
As ARB canopies have a strong internal structure, they have two weight ratings – dynamic weight (weight the canopy can carry when your vehicle is moving) and static weight (weight the canopy can carry when the vehicle is standing still).
The dynamic weight of ARB’s canopies is approximately 100kg, while the static weight is between 350kg and 400kg.
