On October 15, 2020, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Peloton announced a recall of out-of-warranty PR70P clip-in pedals due to risk of axle breaks.
These pedals can break unexpectedly during use, which may result in injury.
PR70P pedals are the first generation of pedals and were fitted on Bikes sold between July 2013 and May 2016. If you bought your Bike between July 2013 and May 2016 and have never replaced your pedals, you may still have PR70P pedals fitted on your Bike.
PR70P pedals can be identified as follows:
- The Peloton logo and the word "PELOTON" are molded into the pedal body
- An orange Peloton symbol and white lettering spelling "PELOTON" are printed on the top of the cleat binding
Please note: If your Bike has pedals with white lettering spelling "PELOTON" without the orange Peloton logo, they are not subject to this recall.
Peloton has received 120 reports of pedal breakages and sixteen reports of injuries. Of those, five injuries required medical care, such as stitches to the lower leg. These pedals are outside the one-year warranty. Peloton recommends that Members change their Peloton Bike pedals annually. No other pedals are affected by this recall.
If your Bike is fitted with a PR70P clip-in pedal, stop using your Bike until you have installed new pedals.
To order free pedals for self-installation fill out and return the attached New Pedal Order Form here.
Once you receive your pedals, instructions to replace them can be found at this link.
If you have any questions regarding this announcement, are not sure if your pedals are covered by this recall, or need advice on installing your new pedals, please contact our Member Support Team by clicking here.
