Peloton announced on Tuesday that the Peloton tread in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom on August 30.
The Tread+ and standard Tread were recalled because their touchscreen could detach from the main unit in some cases. That flaw appears to have been fixed, allowing Peloton to launch the treadmill on a larger scale.
We are excited to share that the wait is over. On August 30, the Peloton Tread will be available for purchase in the United States, Canada and the UK, coming to Germany in Fall 2021.

Peloton stated that launching later this year in the US, UK, Canada and Germany will come with a 23.8-inch touchscreen — quite smaller than the 32-inch touchscreen on the Peloton Tread+ — that can tilt up and down 50 degrees. The standard tread is also smaller than the tread+, which may make it a better choice for those who don’t have a lot of space.
The stock tread also has a traditional 59-inch belt, another area where it differs from the tread+. In this case, that difference is welcome, as the support belt design on the Tread+ was the reason for that treadmill’s recall earlier this year. With a traditional belt like the one on the new tread, the risk of injury should be less of a concern.
In addition to these updated features, the Peloton tread also comes with some notable safety features to further reduce that potential for injury. These safety features include the Tread Lock, which locks the treadmill behind a four-digit passcode that users must enter before each workout. All Tread users have access to Tread Lock whether or not they subscribe to Peloton’s All-Access membership and a physical safety key that can be used to quickly stop the treadmill.
While the tread is less expensive than the tread+, it’s not exactly cheap, with a starting price of $2,495 for those of us here in the States. Peloton’s All-Access membership costs an additional $39 per month, although users can skip the membership and use the treadmill in “Just Run” mode. Look for the Peloton Tread that will land in the US next week.
