Ascend will surpass your expectations over and over again. Amazingly versatile, easily customizable and loaded with features you will love. We built this multipurpose theme with several fresh and original layout options for your website’s header and menus, including a very stylish vertical menu and a stunning transparent header that changes as you scroll.

Customizable Site layout

Ascend Premium has so many options for different unique layout styles. Vertical Menu or Horizontal or both the combinations of styles is endless

Customizable Page Title backgrounds

Ascend Premium has options to set different page title backgrounds of each page or post. The background behind your logo can be transparent (or semi transparent) to show an image or color set behind each page title. Then when you scroll the logo and menu colors can switch as your header background color fades it. This is page by page customizable and also works with sliders.

Powerful Options Panel

Ascend Premium comes with a powerful options panel that allows you to adjust and create. Select your colors, choose your backgrounds and layout styles. Pick from any of the 600+ google fonts and create as many sidebars as you need. Everything is here to fully customize your site.

Kadence Slider Pro Included!

The Kadence Slider Pro is what is used in our Ascend Premium Demos. This slider gives you incredible control to add layers and animate how and where they come into your slider.

When you purchase a theme you get the theme files and a subscription to updates and support which lasts one year. At the end of that year your subscription will automatically renew to continue getting support and theme updates. At any point you can turn off auto renewal or cancel your subscription. If you cancel you will still have the theme files as of the day you canceled but you will no longer get updates for the theme.

You will no longer get theme updates and support. This means you will still have the theme file as of the day you canceled your subscription but you will not have access to any new updates. Please note that we can not guarantee how long the theme will work without updates becuase WordPress and plugins change over time.

To maintain that Kadence Themes can sustain our high level support, frequent updates and feature enhancements to our products offering a lifetime of free updates is not viable. We believe this is our best option in sustaining our company as we continue to create powerful themes and plugins for our users. We have, and always will, fight to create and sell products at as low a rate as we can in order to give our users the most value possible. We believe $45 a year is an incredible value :).

    Absolutely amazing!

    You enjoyed Virtue? You loved Pinnacle? You're going to ADORE Ascend. I do!
    Very comprehensive options, even more than Pinnacle, extremely user-friendly. The result is a modern, beautiful and fresh look and feel across your website.
    Thank you Ben, you have outdone yourself with this one!

    Thanks Kadence!

    I use only Kadence themes for more than a year now. Support from the Kadence team is great. Both Virtue and Pinnacle made me very happy. Ascend Premium and the new set of plugins included in Membership are just perfect to develop easily any kind of website and design. It's a very complete set of options to do whatever you want so fast! I delivered 2 websites last week and both customers are very happy with their new Ascend-powered website. Thanks Kadence! Hugo

    Another Work of Art

    Ascend is another example of how Ben's themes are on another level. The themes along with all the new membership plugins is proof that Kadence is one of the top WordPress theme clubs. I won't ramble on about code, support, performance, etc. Ben's themes simply rock, and I have tried most others.

    Awesome Theme!

    I've only been working with WordPress for about a month or two, but with this incredible theme, I was able to build almost an entire site in just two days!
    Tons of options to play with, so many different ways to configure this theme. You can tell Ben put a lot of attention into every little detail. All of the Kadence themes are well thought out and meticulously designed with the end-users in mind. Excellent work Ben! Thank you!

    This is wonderful!

    So so so happy with Ascend Premium. The rabbit hole of things we can make our webpage do just got super deep. Yet it's pretty simple. Definitely worth every penny!
