For an easy way to transport your bikes in your pickup truck, check out EVOC's Pickup Truck Tailgate Cover and Pad. It's a convenient, practical alternative to more bulky, more expensive in-bed or hitch racks and it's still got everything you need to get up to 6 of your bikes from Point A to Point B. Consider it a significant upgrade over tossing your bikes in your truck bed unsecured, or throwing your bikes over your tailgate without a pad. Why not keep your truck and your bikes in top shape - prevent scratches and damage - by using this Bike Truck Tailgate Pad on your next ride?
How does it protect my bikes and truck? The Bike Tailgate Pad folds over your pickup truck's tailgate, padding and protecting all areas that need it. It covers the outside of the tailgate entirely (where your tires would otherwise rub) and it covers the upper half of the inside of your tailgate (where your chain, sprocket or frame would otherwise rub). The Pad's got 6 velcro straps to secure up to 6 bikes to the Pad, and it's got molded foam padding strategically placed to create 6 slots where your bikes' frames fit. Together, the straps and the slots mean that your bikes will remain firmly secured in place, and won't be sliding around, knocking into one another, and causing damage.
Does it fit my truck? The Tailgate Pad comes in 2 sizes to accommodate your tailgate. The Large size is for compact trucks like the Tacoma, Frontier, Canyon, Ranger. The XL size is for full size trucks like the Tundra, Silverado, Ram, F-150. For setup, a strap fits around the underside of your tailgate that attaches the ends of the pad tightly to your tailgate.
How tough is it? The Truck Tailgate Pad is built EVOC tough. It's made of 600 weight Denier plus a polyurethane coating to make it weather, water and cut resistant. If you're ready to ride, it is too.
What about my tailgate latch? The Tailgate Pad is designed with a cutout that gives you access to your tailgate latch, so once you've unloaded your mountain bikes you'll be able to easily unload the rest of the gear in your pickup truck bed. And that means you've got full truck bed functionality so you don't have to worry about constantly setting up then removing the Tailgate Pad. Leave it on and let it ride.
