Peloton Recalls Pedals on 27,000 Bikes, Citing Injury Risk

Recalled Peloton Pedals


Peloton has issued a voluntary recall of its PR70P clip-in pedals on bikes sold between July 2013 and May 2016 due to a laceration hazard.

This recall, which affects about 27,000 bikes, was announced on Thursday in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission following 120 consumer reports of unexpected pedal breakages during use, including 16 reported leg injuries, with five requiring medical care such as stitches. The CPSC is a federal agency charged with protecting the public from injury risks associated with consumer products.

In a blog post on its website, Peloton recommends that riders immediately cease using affected bikes, and discard the recalled pedals. They also provide information on receiving free replacements through a company form.

Identifying Recalled Pedals

The pedals in question feature an orange Peloton symbol, and the word "PELOTON" printed in white lettering on the top of the cleat binding. The company notes that pedals with the white lettering but not the orange logo are not subject to the recall.

Anyone who purchased a Peloton bike in that timeframe and has never replaced the pedals may be subject to this recall, and should confirm with the company. Peloton recommends replacing its pedals, which come with a one-year warranty, every year.
