Peloton Interactive is reportedly gearing up for the launch of a cheaper treadmill and a high-end bike, according to Bloomberg.
The exercise equipment /media company’s new treadmill, called Tread, will cost less than $3,000, compared with $4,295 for the existing model, Bloomberg reported. Tread will be smaller in size and have a cheaper belt design like most other treadmills in the market compared with the current model’s slat design, Bloomberg said, citing people familiar with the matter who asked not to be named.
The current treadmill will be renamed the “Tread+”, and continue to be sold as a high-end product of the company.
A new bike, called Bike+, will likely be more expensive than the existing $2,245 model. Peloton will then slash the price of the existing machine to less than $1,900.
According to the Bloomberg report, Peloton is also preparing bootcamp training classes for its bikes.
The company might officially announce the launch of the new products as early as next week, ahead of quarterly results scheduled for Sept. 10.
