Peloton recalls pedals on 27,000 bikes after injury reports

Peloton has issued a recall for a specific model of its clip-in bike pedals because of the risk of the axle breaking and injuring riders.

The pedals being recalled are the PR70P which are the first-generation pedal from Peloton bikes sold between July 2013 and May 2016. Per the recall, 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.

Peloton is notifying all affected customers directly on how to receive free replacement pedals, along with instructions for self-installation. Peloton has received over a hundred reports of pedal breakages, including 16 reports of leg injuries. Five of the injuries required medical care, such as stitches to the lower leg.

Peloton’s recall comes right around the time they are being sued by ICON for patents relating to the technology in Bike+.
