Gobbling up rock gardens and lacing root-latticed lines are all in a day's work for you -- but punishing climbs always seem to bring down the stoke. Sure, you could commit to the grueling grind, or hike-a-bike back to the top, but with Thule's GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad you just don't have to. This beefy truck pad shields your truck and your bike for a quick shuttle back to the top, so you can enjoy endless laps, and not waste any energy on those pesky climbs. The GateMate Pro is crafted with flexible padding that adjusts to fit a wide range of tailgates, and comes in two handy sizes to lock into place on compact and full-sized trucks alike. It features hook-and-loop straps that secure your bikes into place, and inside-facing mesh pockets to keep your hydration bag and gloves safe on the road. A heavy-duty vinyl pad protects your bike, and truck, from scrapes and bumps when the grind to the top gets a little hairy, and to keep things easy, the pad features a large handle opening so your back up cam can keep an eye on things when you're making your way from trailhead to trailhead.
