Athletico Tailgate Pad

Great Product

Love the tailgate pad, it has so many tie down options and such a nice backing. Shipping was fast and customer service was top notch. Chevy Silverado

Great Design Features for a good price

I bought the small version to fit my 1st gen Tacoma. This tailgate has great design features. The padding is thick, and the material facing the tailgate is soft. It also has an opening for the handle. But that's where the similarities with its competitors end. The quick release buckles are the s-hook type. They seem to be more secure than the traditional plastic push button quick release. There is also a large pocket to store various things. Because of the large pocket, I am tempted to make it a permanent fixture on my truck. I hope they continue to make these until my truck dies.

thick good padding

very happy with the Athletico Tailgate pad for our ebikes. The bikes are 47lbs each, and extra cushion really protects the truck's tailgate area. We drove over 700 miles with the bikes in the back of the truck with no issues.
