Ditch the towel.

Forget using a grungy old towel to protect your truck's tailgate next time you shuttle to the trail. Instead, grab the Dakine Trophy Pick-Up Pad for protection against scratches and dings. The Trophy Pick-Up Pad is decked out in wild, back-to-nature style that's unique to this particular colorway. In fact, this colorway is exclusive to Competitive Cyclist and Backcountry, ensuring you stand out when you pull up to the local trailhead.

Resting on the tailgate of your truck, this Pick-Up Pad is constructed from heavy-duty nylon, with 0.75-inch padding for a scratch-free tailgate. An easy-access flap makes dropping the tailgate a breeze, while three web cinch straps prevent it from shifting during transport.

Offered in two sizes, the Dakine Trophy Pick-Up Pad fits both mid- and full-sized trucks. The small works best with mid-sized trucks like the Frontier and Tacoma, and the large works best with full-sized trucks like the F-250 and Ram. Moreover, you'll find the small-sized pad holds up to five bikes, while the large holds up to seven bikes. Both sizes secure your trail bikes with adjustable hook-and-loop anchor straps for a scratch-free fit without shifting during transport.

  • Rugged nylon tailgate pad protects bikes and vehicles
  • Anchor straps hold bikes in place during transit
  • Extra padding prevents tailgate damage

Awesome Truck Pad!

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

It works great and looks great

Great Pad!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this pad, it secures bikes and keeps them in place during long road trips or short jaunts to the local trails. It is easy to throw on the tailgate and take off if you won't be using it for a few days. It does have the kickstand to help you out if you have a backup camera located in your handle. I have the small and it is perfect for my 2013 Tacoma. My one con to this pad is that the kickstand still limits how much of your backup camera you can actually see, you cannot get the full range view. However, with something completely covering your tailgate, I don't know I can expect much more. I would certainly buy this product again, especially in the sweet "Trophy" pattern!!

Feel free to reach directly out to me with any and all questions. or (801)204-4657

I can dig it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Solid construction, AWESOME pattern, and keeps my bikes where I need them on the way to the trail. You can't really ask for more...oh wait, yes I can, I really wish this thing had a hole for my backup camera that's located on the latch of my tailgate.

Would buy again/10

Finally Legit

    Well it takes a Dakine tailgate pad and Tacoma to make the transition to legit mountain biker. This fits great and allows easy transportation of any style of bike - trail, DH, DJ, road, fattie, kids, and anything else you can come up with. The straps keep the bikes in place. Downside: the downtube can and does rub on the pad so I recommend putting a little extra protection on your bike. Rubber has been known to work. But that is the cost of shuttling and looking good. Get it and ride your bike more!

    What year is your Tacoma? i have a 2016 and I'm worried that the new style tail gate is too wide for these pads to fit properl

    Easy Solid Pad

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great pickup bike pad with a solid print too. Fits easily on my Nissan Frontier with the Small size. If you have a full size pickup get the Large.

    Taco protector!

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

    Fits great on my 2014 Tacoma. I have the backup cam built into the tailgate handle, so the kickstand is nice when trying to park in a tight trailhead.

    Good buy, needs care

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this product about 6 months ago and have had it on the back of my truck about 3/4 of that time. It is a great idea, well built, and great for the avid biker. The only downside i have seen to the product is that it will fade. I live in AZ and the 100+ degree weather and almost constant sunshine has defiantly put faded the color as well as worn and sun bleached the plastic. While nothing has broken, it does seem to have become brittle. Just be aware in buying the product that it will fade when shown to constant sun.

    How are bikes secured to the top of the pad? Are there built in Velcro loops like other Dakine pads? What is the inside material of the pad, any concerns about scratching the tailgate?


    Best Answer


    Yes there are straps to secure bikes. This is exactly like the original Dakine Pick Up Pad, only the unique print is different.

    Feel free to reach out to our customer service team for more questions.

    Happy Riding!

    before i buy this, want some clarification. Does the large size have plain brown borders like the picture in one of the reviews?


    The large size has the turkey coffee color boarders.

    The print does not extend all the way to the sides on the large vs the small. If you check out Noah Singers review image you can see what the large looks like.

    Hope this help.


    Easy to use, well built ans stylish

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Very well thought out & built with tuff outer material and ample padding to protect the bikes & truck. Holds up to 5 bikes and is super stylish.

    The Dakine pick-up pad has set the bar for getting from the house to the mountain to the bar. This animal print pattern is available exclusively at Competitive Cyclist. I have the large and it fits my '12 Toyota Tundra perfectly. Beyond doing it's job of safely carrying up to 7 bikes I really like that you can secure the tailgate latch cover in the up position so that I can still use the back-up camera and not crush that gear I left behind the tailgate.
