NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Peloton, the technology company that revolutionized the fitness industry with its category-creating indoor cycling bike, today unveiled its second-ever product: the Peloton Tread. The state-of-the-art new technology and fitness platform will allow Peloton Members to participate in live and on-demand bootcamp and circuit classes from the convenience of their own homes. For the first time, Peloton is extending the power, energy and connectivity of its technology-enabled workouts beyond a bike to a completely new and innovative platform. The Peloton Tread will debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV, from January 9-12, 2018.

"Just like the Peloton Bike, the Peloton Tread is now the best synthesis of hardware, software, and class content in the category. It allows Members of all ages and fitness levels to take effective, fun and motivating circuit, running, and strength workouts on their schedules and in their homes."
