Watch this page – we will continue to add more updates as they become available.

Update (9/4/20 7:59am CT)

Early this morning, Bloomberg posted an article with much of the same information we had heard below, but they also had some other tidbits we think you will be excited about!

  • The timing: According to the article, we can expect the official Peloton announcement next week ahead of the earnings call.  The earnings call is scheduled for 9/10/20 at 5pm ET.  I’m PERSONALLY predicting we’ll hear about it the day before.
  • The names:  The new Tread will keep the name Tread, while the original will keep the name Tread+; The current bike will stay the Bike and the new bike will be called Bike+.  Pretty simple!
  • The pricing: I haven’t heard this anywhere else, but Bloomberg says you can expect
    • the new Tread,  to be less than $3,000, compared to the current $4,295 Tread price
    • The new Bike+ will be be MORE than the current $2,245 and the current Bike will have a price reduction down to $1,900
  • Other details: Supposedly both the new tread AND the new bike will have a monitor that is able to swivel.

Watch this page – we will continue to add more updates as they become available.

Update (9/3/20 9:50am CT)


We’re still discovering details about the new bike. The addition of a monitor that swivels was essentially confirmation that bike-based boot camps are coming. Well, now we know who the first bike-boot instructors will be!

Cody Rigsby
Robin Arzon
Jess Sims

You read that right. Jess Sims is adding the bike to her repertoire and bringing boot camps with her.

Watch this page – we will continue to add more updates as they become available.


Update (9/2/20 10:50am CT)


Here’s what we’re hearing about the new Tread. While haven’t confirmed official specs, we have confirmed that the new Tread will have a significantly smaller footprint. Super important for apartment-dwellers or those looking to fit one more piece of fitness equipment into an already cramped space. The monitor size will be reduced to 23.5 inches. This is identical to the monitor size for the new bike so having identical monitors probably saves them on manufacturing costs. The new Tread will no longer utilize slats. However, users can still expect a similar feel as Peloton has added a cushioning device to maintain the bounce that current Tread-owners are used to. We do not anticipate the new Tread being available for purchase as soon as the new bike will be. Look for sales to begin around the first of the year.


Update (9/2/20 10:04am CT)


Here’s the latest – How will the bike interact with Apple products??  Well, for one if you have an Apple watch, you can simply tap the display to pair and begin displaying your heart rate.  Second, it will automatically update your rings!  WOW!


Original Post (9/2/20 9:35am CT)


Rumors are starting to leak about Peloton’s new bike and we have the scoop! This is what we’re hearing about what to expect.

The new premium bike will feature a larger monitor clocking in at 23.5 inches. For comparison’s sake, the current bike monitor is 21.5 inches. But bigger isn’t the only change with the screen. The new monitor will also swivel! This all but confirms that bike boot camps are coming.

Obviously music has always been an integral part of the Peloton experience and they are really upping the ante with a front-facing soundbar plus a subwoofer.

Another fascinating feature of the new bike is its ability to automatically change the resistance based on what the instructor calls out.

We haven’t been able to confirm the price but we’re being told to expect an official announcement to come sometime around Peloton’s next quarterly earnings report.

Be sure and stay tuned as more rumors about Peloton’s new bike start to drop.

With so many new bikes having been sold in the last three months, we have to wonder if there might be a trade-in program in the works.

    But the question remains…are these new innovations enough to get Tom on the bike??

    • Crystal on September 2, 2020 at 7:03 pm

      DOUBT IT!! LOL

  2. Jan on September 2, 2020 at 3:06 pm

    Gosh, I will go for it if there is a trade in. If not, I will stick with my old one and have it follow me into retirement in a couple of years.

  3. Mireille Boutin on September 2, 2020 at 3:41 pm

    OMG!! Yes please ! A trade in programm! My husband and I have each our bikes!!

  5. Deb Merchant on September 2, 2020 at 4:21 pm

    Need dates on new bike!!!!

    • Crystal on September 2, 2020 at 7:02 pm

      Keep watching this page for new details!

  6. Stacy #CurlyBlonde on September 2, 2020 at 4:27 pm

    automatic resistance!!! OH SHIT!!

  7. Melissa on September 2, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Would the Apple watch piece be more of a software update that we’d all get, or only available on the new bike? Any idea when this new bike might be available? Mine hasn’t even arrived yet and now I’m wondering if I should have waited to order.. 🙂

    • Crystal on September 2, 2020 at 6:59 pm

      Pretty sure it’s only on the premium bike!

    • DJ on September 5, 2020 at 12:24 pm

      Those are my exact thoughts. I ordered my bike on August 26th and it’s not due to arrive until October 16th. Waiting to hear the announcement so that I can decide if u want to call back and a get a price adjustment I don’t even have the bike or cancel and rebuy the bike.

    • DJ on September 5, 2020 at 12:28 pm

      Yes, that’s an excellent question. I think they should be able to push current owners an update but doubt they will.

  8. Paul & Lara Latshaw on September 2, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    We have 2 bikes since April, for a trade-in we would probably upgrade. If not highly unlikely

  9. Amy Silverstein on September 2, 2020 at 5:32 pm

    With a rumored price tag in NYC of $4,145 no thanks!

    But yes to the rumors of sound bar and subwoofer, supposed to be “quality” partnership like Bose to up the price. 😒

    And you can make the current screen swivel too! Get “The Pivot” from Top Form Design it’ll be the best $60 ever spent! Use the almost $4200 for threadmill 😍

    • Crystal on September 2, 2020 at 6:58 pm

      Not Sure where you are getting the price, but I’ve heard the current bike will go down and this bike will be similar to current price. The tread is smaller and will be cheaper.

    • Crystal on September 2, 2020 at 7:02 pm

      Also, FYI, if you make your current screen swivel, that can void your warranty

  10. Susan Burton on September 2, 2020 at 6:37 pm

    I will definitely trade in my 2014 bike for a the new model. If no trade deal, I’ll likely buy a 2nd bike and then gradually try to sell my original bike after a while.
    Thank you for all you do and provide for us!

  11. Quem on September 2, 2020 at 7:13 pm

    any rumour updates on a Peloton rower???

    • Crystal on September 2, 2020 at 8:23 pm

      yes, they have gone away from the rower. John Foley talked about his reasons why on a recent podcast appearance – but basically the market is just much smaller!

      • Gretchen on September 3, 2020 at 12:03 am

        Which episode?

        • Crystal on September 3, 2020 at 6:55 pm

          It was breaking news, so it will be in this week’s episode, which airs Friday 9/4. Thanks!

  12. Kristen on September 2, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Having this bike since early 2017 makes me think I’ll spring for the upgraded model. If it’s a trade in, so much the better! Otherwise I’ll give my old bike to my son.

  13. Tammy Barnett on September 3, 2020 at 3:41 am

    I home the handlebars on the new bike move fore and aft.

    • Crystal on September 3, 2020 at 6:56 pm

      No indication that they will… 🙁

  14. Jamie on September 3, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    Crystal- so no rower ever? Ugh

    • Crystal on September 3, 2020 at 6:56 pm

      Not saying NEVER, but definitely not any time soon.

  15. Ann Skoglund on September 3, 2020 at 7:12 pm

    If they did a rower with programs as compelling as the bike they would find the market was larger than predicted. I like to row on the concept 2 but darn it gets boring.

    • Crystal on September 4, 2020 at 12:29 am

      They don’t do anything quickly. They use data. They were quite far down the path before changing directions. That tells me, for whatever reason, it didn’t make sense.

    There’s some new hardware which could be the new bike screen that went through FCC approval in June:

    The reports don’t have pictures – there are letters requesting confidentiality for 180 days on the user manual and internal/external photos though, and they refer to the bike as an attached device.

    So yes, some sort of new hardware coming…

  23. Wes H. on September 5, 2020 at 2:04 am

    I just ordered a bike about 3 weeks ago. Since I’m not getting it delivered till mid October, I may have to update my order.

    Anyone knows when the New Tread+ (The upgrade to the current model) will be coming out. i hate to spend 5K on the current Tread+ and find out a month later the better/upgraded Tread+ is coming out.


    • Crystal on January 29, 2021 at 4:08 pm

      Its out in the UK, some US states and Canada locations starting 2/9 and all over the US on 3/30!
