Get your buddies to pay for it.

Your buddies always make sure you drive to the trailhead—not because they enjoy your company, but because you have a truck. Unfortunately, your truck is taking a beating from all the bikes slung across the tailgate. The Dakine Pick-Up Pad is the best defense against chips and dings.

Resting on the tailgate of your truck, the Pick-Up Pad is constructed from heavy-duty nylon and .75-inch padding for a scratch-free tailgate. An access flap makes dropping the tailgate simple, while the three web cinch straps prevent the Pick-Up Pad from shifting during transport. Five hook-and-loop straps across the top of the pad keep the bikes in place. The final touch is the reflective Dakine logo across the back for a bit of style and safety.

The Dakine Pick-Up Pad comes in two sizes: Small (54 inches) and Large (62 inches) and is available in Black or Palapa.

  • Foam and nylon construction
  • Quickly and easily attaches to your tailgate
  • Access patch to maintain tailgate function

The way to go

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There's a reason every mountain biker seems to have a Dakine tailgate pad on the back of their truck. The size small fits great on my 2001 Tacoma and I really enjoy the straps that secure the downtube to the top of the tailgate. With the downtube strapped in and rear tire in a groove of my truck's bed, I've been able to do some light off-roading without the bike(s) moving around. I highly recommend this pad.

A No-Brainer for Truck Owners

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You see trucks all the time with 7 or 8 bikes perfectly aligned, meanwhile your tailgate with some old carpet or a blanket loafs in the wind while you pray there are no potholes. Don't learn the hard way, these pads are really the only way to go. The additional straps secure your bike just right while you break it loose on the shuttle up. Protect both your truck and bikes.

No better way

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pad is great. I drive an F150 and use the large pad on my truck. The pad has 7 Velcro straps to hold down the bikes and it will definitely fit 7 bikes comfortably. I don't know any other way that you can fit 7 bikes securely in the back of a truck. the bikes are locked in place next to one other without rubbing or banging into each other. A bike rack is a couple hundred dollars and its holding maybe 3 bikes comfortably. This pad is $120 and is way easier loading up.

If you have any questions please feel free to hit me up!.

No better way

Easy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Small fits really well on a Chevy Canyon truck. Super easy to use and set up, literally 3 straps. Holds bikes on tailgate like a champ. 10/10 would buy again.

Great Pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this pad a lot this past summer and it is great. There is enough space to have 5 bikes which is perfect for any truck. The velcro straps work great at keeping your bikes in place and not sliding around and damaging the other bikes. The pad is super easy to install and takes just a minute or two. If you are looking for a new pad that will be able to hold your bike and all of your friends and look stylish while doing it I would for sure check out this pad.

Simple Solution

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bike pads are the easiest way to haul large numbers of bikes in a truck. I can secure 5 bikes in the back of mine now without them fighting for space. The padding lines up perfectly with the tail gate and the attachment loops hold the bikes firmly which allows for mine and my friends' carbon bikes to be safely transported over rough roads. If you drive a truck and want to haul bikes this is the answer.

Convenience

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the best purchase ive made in a while. No more throwing a blanket over the tailgate and having it blow in the wind going down the freeway. I have a tacoma and the size S works perfectly. The kickstand for the rear view camera is also an added bonus!

Great Pad

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

There is a reason why you see more Dakine truck pads out on the road than any other brand. They absolutely kick ass! The weather resistant material is awesome, and holds up to pretty much whatever you can throw at it.

Great Bang for your buck

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bout the large for my Nissan titan. Installation was quick and easy with three straps. Bike fit well and was secure for the whole ride to the trip. Straps fit well and kept the bike in place. I am able to transport numerous people and bikes now without eating too much of the back of the truck. Great buy.

Perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Nothing is easier than throwing your bike over the tail gate and ripping back to the top for another lap. By far the easiest solution for bicycle transportation. The straps offer additional security for long trips or bumpy roads. 10/10

Must have

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you have a truck and do not have a bike pad, you're doing it wrong. These pads make it so easy and efficient to load and unload bikes. I have a 2005 F-150 and the large pad fits perfectly. The straps are also a great for keeping the bikes in place if you are driving on a dirt road where there might be a few bumps.

works with backup camera

    I bought the large for my 2015 F-150. I really wanted one that would work with my backup camera and this fit the bill. I also like the straps for keeping the bikes separated.

    Looking for the same! Glad to hear it works with the cam. What size did you get?

    I see the tailgate pad works well with mountain bikes, does it also work with road bikes too?

    Hey Justin! Yes it will work with road bikes too. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Awesome!

      This tailgate pad is simple and easy. Takes only a couple minutes to set up. I bought the small size for my ford ranger and it's a perfect fit. Couldn't be any easier to load my bike on and the bike stays with the strap. It's also a really good quality pad and well worth the price.

      I agree Robert, this DAKINE pad is simply the best out there and super affordable. Thanks for the review!

      Simple!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      What can I say other than this is the easiest solution to bike transportation for a truck. Throw it over the tail gate, cinch the 3 straps to hold it in place, and go. The padding works excellent, and is made from durable materials that last. The addition of the velcro loop straps to better hold your bike in place is a welcomed feature as well. As far as fitment goes, I installed the small size on a Toyota tacoma, and it fits perfect, with a half inch of tail gate left exposed allowing for easy closing/latching of the tailgate itself. Ditch that towel/blanket, and add this for simple, secure, and safe travels

      So easy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      By far the best way to haul bikes. I installed it in less than five minutes on a 1/2 ton GMC. Downfall, I can't lock my topper when the pad is on, theft at a trailhead is bad karma, I knew that when I ordered. Not sure why Backcountry charged extra shipping for this item, apparently it doesn't qualify for free shipping. Make your live easier and get one of these pads.

      Perfect bike carrier!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a great product! So convenient and easy to install and remove. I can carry multiple bikes in the bed of my truck and still have enough room for a storage bin.
