The $1.25 billion company Peloton spent 18 months secretly working on what is only its second-ever product, launching a new way to run, walk, do off-treadmill strength training and more. Their new $4,000 treadmill is a sleek piece of equipment featuring a 32-inch touchscreen tablet that immerses the user in live and on-demand workouts with the stellar content that sets the company light-years ahead of the competition (not that they really have any).
