What is going on with Peloton?

Peloton's prominence in the news isn't the best for the brand's image and has resulted in concerns about the quality of the products. AP News reported that Peloton is now recalling over two million exercise bikes due to product malfunctions. The issue itself revolved around the Peloton bike seat, where it was noted that they could break during use. This puts users at risk of injury while they're using the bike. More specifically, these recalls are issued for Peloton Model PL01.

Per AP News, "The recall includes approximately 2.2 million of the Peloton Bikes Model PL01. The bikes were sold in the U.S. from January 2018 through May 2023 for about $1,400. They were sold at Peloton and Dick's Sporting Goods stores nationwide and online at Amazon, Peloton, and Dick's websites." Follow-up reports from USA Today cited Peloton's statement, saying 35 reports of the seat post breaking led to 13 reports of injuries, including a fractured wrist, lacerations, and bruises.

Peloton is now offering bike owners a free replacement seat post that can fix any potential issues and avoid further injuries.
