UPDATE: Peloton confirmed this week that they WILL indeed launch a Peloton rower in 2020 although no further details about the rower or its interoperability with the Peloton App were provided.
OK, this is purely speculative but I THINK Peloton will soon be releasing a Peloton Rowing Machine.
This past October Peloton acquired Tonic Fitness Technology, a company that has been manufacturing Peloton’s high tech spin bikes for a bunch of years. And Tonic recently filed a patent application for a a high tech indoor rowing machine with the U.S. Patent Office.
Piecing in all together…
- Peloton owns Tonic;
- Tonic filed a patent application for an indoor rower;
- Peloton owns all of Tonic’s technology, include its rower patent; and
- Therefore, it only seems natural that a Peloton Rower is the next big step for the company!
A Peloton Rower would be a great complement to the Peloton Bike and the Peloton Treadmill. And of course, if you can access all of the rowing classes from the Peloton App while using your own rower (like you can causing your own bike and treadmill with the app), then that would be amazing!
A couple of my close friends are heavy into rowing and have this Concept 2 Rower at home and I am sure they would love to access Peloton rowing content (assuming its of the same great quality).
