great pad, but colors faded on my color

    By far the easiest way to carry bikes if you have a truck. I bought the size S for my 2017 Toyota Tacoma and it fits decent, with an inch or two on both sides. I had to move the pad towards the back to cover the bottom of my tailgate, so the haul loops connect to the fork rather than the frame, which works fine but not as well as it was intended. The back up camera flap is such an awesome addition nowadays. Mine works... kinda. The print is awesome, but unfortunately the colors faded pretty fast to a light pink almost. Definitely a bummer on a shiny new truck, but it still looks good enough.

    Works like it should

      I use this all the time for hauling bikes around to the trails. It fits 3 comfortably, but it does have 4 straps and 4 bikes would be a tight fit. It keeps the bike pretty upright and doesn't move around too much. I have a Toyota Tacoma and the small fits perfectly

      Reliable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Used this pad for hauling bikes all over the SLC/PC area and its still holding up after many days of use. The separate loops to tie down and hold bikes apart is a nice touch. Better than that spare blanket for sure.

      DAKINE Pick-Up Pad

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Bought this as a more economical alternative to a hitch carrier. I also really like that it doesn't hurt my clearance when I'm off road, and that it doesn't get in the way when I'm not using it.

      Easy way to haul bikes!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is probably the fastest and cheapest way to haul your bikes if you have a pickup truck. It keeps the bikes in place and protect the downtube well. Durability seems better than expected for not taking it off ever.

      Best way to haul bikes in a pick-up

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      A tailgate pad is the best way to haul mountain bikes in a pick-up truck, especially if you are shuttling. Cram 5 or 6 bikes into the bed of your truck and strap them in, takes 2 minutes and you're good to cruise back up the mountain with your friends for another lap.

      The Dakine pad seems to be the best quality out of the different brands I've tried. I've had others where the straps break or the pad itself starts fraying and separating. So far I've had none of these issues with the Dakine pad after a half-season of use. Get the small size for Tacomas, Frontiers, Colorado's, S10's, etc. and get the large size for any half-ton or full size pick-up truck.

      One key piece of advice with tailgate pads: stick your hydration pack, helmet, or stuff some gear in between the bikes' rear triangles. The rear ends of the bikes can shift position on rough roads and cause the pedals or frames to scratch each other. Just putting something in between the bikes rear end so they can't directly contact each other will protect your bikes from scratches. The straps hold the front ends in place well.

      Does what it's supposed to ...

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

      Works extremely well holding mountain bikes in place without damaging the paint or bodywork of the truck ... doesn't work quite so well with road or cyclocross bikes. For those, you're better off with something like the KUAT Dirtbag Truck Bed Mount (http://www.competitivecyclist.com/kuat-dirtbag-truck-bed-mount?skidn=KUA0015)

      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!

      Hey Chris,

      If you pull the pad down so it covers your whole tailgate, the access panel to the handle is in the right spot, and you have less of a chance getting scratches/buffs on your tailgate. This also moves the haul straps down so you have to strap it to your fork rather than your frame, but it works. I can see about a third of my back up camera but it's pretty useless at that point. Coming from a 2017 Tacoma owner.

      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.

      why is this pad so much more expensive now...

      why is this pad so much more expensive now ,ordered one a few months ago and paid considerably less 79.95 for the same item.Can't you sell me this one for the same price,i have bought a fair amount of stuff from you!

      Pricing is dependent on cost, model year, and season. Ski gear is going to be more expensive in the fall/winter than it will be in the spring/summer, bike gear is going to be cheaper in the winter than the spring/summer. The previous pad may have been sale priced do to a closeout buy we may have gotten from DaKine. Please give our CS line a call, 801-736-6396 x4378 and we can see if any accommodations can be made.
