The <a href="https://www.onepeloton.com/tread">new treadmill, Tread</a>, will cost $2,495.</p><p>The Tread, which is already available in the UK and Canada, has a slightly smaller frame than the Tread+, and has 59 inches of running space compared to the more expensive model's 67 inches. It also has a smaller touchscreen, and weighs a lot less, too.</p><p>Rather than the shock-absorbing slat belt used in the Tread+, the new version has a traditional running belt.</p><p>The new treadmill has a slightly lower maximum incline of 12.5%, compared to 15% for the Tread+. It also doesn't have what Peloton calls a "free mode," where users can push the belt on their own, which the company says "activates a different set of muscles."</p><p>But it has the same maximum speed, incline gradients, and 12-month limited warranty, Peloton said.</p><p>Sales launch on May 27, and the company is inviting customers to try the Tread by booking an appointment at a Peloton showroom.</p><p><a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/peloton-is-reportedly-launching-cheaper-treadmill-and-a-premium-bike-2020-9">Peloton first announced plans for the lower-priced treadmill</a> back in September, as Insider's Bethany Biron reported.
