Review of the Softride Truck-Bed-Bike Racks on a 2015 Nissan Frontier


Today on our 2015 Nissan Frontier, we're going to do a test fit on the Softride Shuttle Pad. This is a tailgate style bike transporting pad. Part number on it is SR26461. To get this fit on our vehicle, we're just going to lay the pad right over the top of the tailgate here. This angle, you see how that flap there That's going to be towards the back side. About like that. Now, this one's a little bit different than some of the others.

It uses four straps to hold the pad in pace, and we're going to feed that underneath our tailgate. It'll come out inside the vehicle, right here in the bed area. We'll bring that right up into our buckle. I'm going to help us pre-position it there, and we'll get our other three taken care of. Finally, our last one. Most of the tailgate pads that we offer have a three-strap system, so this is going to give us a little more coverage on the straps.

Once we get them all secure, we can just start tightening them down a little bit. It's going to conform well to our tailgate. Of course, this one just came out of the package, so after we use it for a little while it's going to form up a little bit better. See, we've got nice loops all the way across the top here, so we can help to get our bikes secured in place using some of the provided straps. We've got a nice flap here on the back. Open that up, it's going to give you direct access right into that tailgate handle.

You can see we can fully open the tailgate, we'll have full access to the bed. It doesn't interfere with any of that at all. This gives us a really nice protection for our tailgate for when we load up our bikes, which we'll do now . or bike, rather. To load it up, we're just going to turn our handlebars about 90 degrees one way or the nother. Put it right up and in, set it down on our bed.

Then we can use one of the straps and just get it secured in. That's really all there is to it. Nice and secure, we'll be able to load as many bikes as will fit in there, and we can get heading down the road. Wanted to get a good look at the Softride Shuttle Pad, and we've seen how it fits and works with our 2015 Nissan Frontier. That's going to complete the test fit for today.
