The platoon stock rose on Tuesday as the connected exercise bike maker said one of its tapes will be available in the US, Canada, the UK and Germany in the weeks following safety recovery earlier this year.
The company said the new Peloton Tread will go on sale in the US, Canada and the UK on August 30th. It will premiere in Germany in the fall. The new tread units will cost $ 2,495.
Platoon (PTON) announced the recovery of Tread in May, citing the risk of injury. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has warned that the touch screen of the tape drive may become disconnected and fall off.
The Tread was sold in the US as part of an invitation-only program from November to March. Peloton is offering to fix Tread treadmills in the US, UK and Canada to keep them connected to the touch screen. The repairs will be accompanied by new units sold after Tuesday.
The new Peloton Tread units will also feature a digital passcode to unlock the tread belt. They will also come with a security key to allow users to make quick stops.
According to the CPSC, Peloton unveiled another tape product in May, called Tread +. Platoon shares slipped after the announcement of the warning.
The company also received 72 reports of “adult users, children, pets and / or objects being pulled in the back” of the Tread + film. Twenty-nine of these reports described “injuries to children, such as second- and third-degree abrasions, broken bones, and lacerations.”
Before you remember, in April the CPSC told consumers to stop using Tread + because of security issues. Peloton initially said the announcement was “inaccurate and misleading.” He later said the company’s initial response to the agency was “a mistake.”
Budgets: Wall Street expects Peloton to turn 44 cents per share into a one-year gain of 27 cents a share, according to FactSet. Unlike GAAP, Peloton is expected to lose 35 cents per share. Analysts say sales of 52% are $ 924 million.

Sales of peloton bikes, which are often used with online training classes, have been refreshing lately as the economy reopens. The company has experienced delays in shipping and higher costs for backing up major U.S. ports.
Peloton announced in May that it plans to build the first U.S. plant to open in Ohio in 2023. Peloton said, “We wanted to make sure we have capacity, quality and economies of scale in the bike and tread product lines.”
Peloton recently said it intended to launch an in-app video game called Lanebreak, which puts users through various tempo and endurance tests. The company also introduced a corporate welfare program in June.
