Peloton has expanded their line of luxury cardio machines to include a rowing machine. Peloton Row is currently available for pre-order and products will begin shipping in early December. The Peloton Row is similar to other Peloton products, featuring a screen so you can participate in live and on-demand instructor-led classes with and without your machine. In order to maximize functionality of Peloton Row, you’ll need to subscribe to Peloton All-Access.
The Peloton Row has a footprint of about 8 feet by 2 feet. Peloton recommends a space of 8 feet by 6 feet in order to participate in the combination rower and bootcamp classes. The rower can be folded up or stored vertically when not in use. The slide rail is constructed of powder-coated aluminum; the hub and handle are molded plastic; and the belt is a woven strap. The rower has an ergonomic seat and handle. The foot straps can be adjusted with one hand.
The Row uses “electronically controlled” resistance that Peloton claims is nearly silent. Workouts are streamed via a 23.8” HD touchscreen, which can also swivel 45 degrees in either direction for off rower workouts. When rowing, you can listen to workout guidance via the rear-and front-facing speakers or Bluetooth headphones.
While using a Peloton class you can set your own personal pace targets based on levels. The rower also offers live feedback on your rowing form via Form Assist. Sensors in the Peloton Row will sense your position and give personalized feedback. When your form needs improvement, areas of your body will be highlighted in red on the screen. After every class you’ll also receive a breakdown of your form.
