SwitchBack makes tailgate pads that protect both bike & truck when shuttling to the trailhead. But their unique bonus is that when you drop the tailgate, the pad has an integrated camp chair built in for a comfortable place to chill out post-ride (or to pre-game?) Now SwitchBack has released a new pad for full-size trucks, plus a 20% off sale for holiday shoppers on all three sizes.
SwitchBack Tailgate Pads for trucks, with built-in seating
SwitchBack’s tailgate covers offer foam padded protection over the top & outside of the tailgate to protect your truck from getting scratched when you hang your bikes out of the bed for transport. And then on the inside, fold down camp seats offer more protection for the bike, plus a bonus comfy spot to chill at the trailhead.
SwitchBack Tailgate Pads Tech Details
The Tailgate Pads are available in three sizes – the original $120 54″ wide Mid-Size for mid-size pickups, the $110 25″ wide Narrow to haul a single bike/seat one person (and to not obstruct backup cameras or your tailgate’s handle), and the new $160 58″ wide Full-Size for larger trucks.
Each of the Tailgate Pads are made from a durable, weatherproof fabric that is UV-resistant, and get daisy chain loops along the top to strap down your bike (or anything else you need to haul). The two wider pads also feature a central flap to access the tailgate’s latch.
The padded, fold-down ‘Crazy-Creek’-style seats have adjustable straps so you can change their reclining angle. Plus, they feature a top flap that secures over the top of the tailgate, so mud from your bike doesn’t get inside to the seats when you haul bikes.
All of the Tailgate Pads are available now, direct from SwitchBack. Through the end of the year (expiring Dec 31), SwitchBack is offering 20% off all of their pads with the promo code ‘holiday2018‘ at checkout.
