Peloton announces new safety features for Tread treadmill after reported injuries and death

Peloton will once again sell its Tread treadmill model in the U.S., UK and Canada on Aug. 30 and in Germany later this fall, the company announced Tuesday.

Why it matters: The move comes three months after the company recalled its Tread and Tread+ models due to reports of small children being injured and even killed beneath the machines.


  • Peloton initially pushed back against the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which had recommended that consumers stop using its treadmill.
  • The company later switched gears and urged people to stop using the machines immediately and contact Peloton for a full refund or "other qualified remedy."

Details: The new Tread has several safety features, including...

  • A Tread Lock. Each authorized user will need to enter thefour-digit, digital passcode to unlock the belt before a workout.
  • A physical safety key to help bring a runner to a quick stop during a class if needed.
  • Easy-to-reach speed and incline knobs and stop buttons.

What they're saying: "Our goal is to be the go-to fitness solution and the largest and safest home fitness brand in the world," John Foley, Peloton’s CEO and co-founder, said in a statement.

  • "We’ve worked hard to make sure the new Tread truly earns its spot in Members’ homes. We’ll always continue to innovate our hardware, software and safety features to live up to our commitment to Member safety and to improving the full Member experience."

The big picture: Peloton and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced free repairs for the roughly 1,000 Tread units sold in the U.S. to ensure the touchscreen remains securely attached to the machine.

  • Current Tread owners in the UK and Canada are also eligible.
  • New Treads sold after Tuesday will incorporate these changes.

Worth noting: The machine recall isn't the only controversy dogging Peloton. At one point, its website allowed anybody to access Peloton users' age, gender, city, weight, and workout statistics.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
