CPSC Approves A Rear-Guard Fix for The Peloton Tread+ Recall

Peloton just made a big announcement – they’ve gotten the green light from the CPSC for a rear guard for the Peloton Tread+. This move is going to put an end to the Tread+ recall sometime later this year. What’s even better is that this new rear guard will be up for grabs, absolutely free, for all Tread+ owners.

What’s the plan? Peloton will send over their service technician right to your doorstep to get the new guard all set up in your Tread+. A pretty cool gesture, I must say. And to make sure everyone’s on board, Peloton has already shot out emails to all the Tread+ owners with the details.

Here’s what the press release had to say: This new guard is quite the innovation. It’s got this nifty design that lets it move away from the treadmill if it bumps into something. That’s when it steps in, cutting off the power and gently slowing down the treadmill belt. It’s like an extra pair of eyes for safety.

Wondering how to get your hands on this guard? Well, it’s a simple two-step dance. First, you register to snag the guard by filling out a form. Second, when it’s ready, the Peloton crew will come and fit it in your Tread+ without you lifting a finger.

Now, here’s the only bummer – the press release didn’t give us the exact date this year when the guard will show up, nor did it whisper about when the Tread+ might be up for grabs again. But, the CPSC did drop a hint about a “Fall 2023” timeframe for the guard in their own press release.

Here’s the CPSC scoop: This guard is all about erasing the chance of anything getting stuck near the back of the treadmill. Just like Peloton’s description, it’s got this smart design that makes it move away if it senses anything coming close, keeping things safe and sound. And guess what? While they’re getting it all set for you, you can be ahead of the game and register for a Fall 2023 delivery. And yep, it’s all on the house.

Now, let’s talk numbers – since that recall back in May 2021, there have been more reports of stuff going wrong, but no more unfortunate incidents. We’re talking about 279 new incidents and 61 more injuries reported. Since that recall, Peloton’s received a total of 351 reports of stuff getting pulled under the treadmill, with 90 of those causing injuries.

Peloton’s got some more news up on their FAQ page about the recall. They’re letting everyone know that they’re still offering full refunds for those who want one, and you’ve got until November 2023 to decide.

Remember when we mentioned Peloton’s CEO Barry McCarthy? Well, he’s been pretty optimistic about the Tread+ making a comeback. And it turns out, earlier this year, Peloton had even filed for a patent for this rear guard. And that’s the same thing the CPSC just gave the thumbs-up to.
