While the price of the Row (Peloton’s rowing machine) has not yet been officially announced in Canada, there have been hints that suggest it could be slightly cheaper than the US price of $2995. In this article, The Clip Out digs into Peloton’s global pricing comparison, Canadian market analysis, and what this pricing strategy could mean for Peloton’s business.
Note: The difference in pricing from country to country seems to be driven by more than just the exchange rate.
Global Pricing Comparison
Peloton, officially launched in the United States in 2012, now has products spanning the globe in Canada, the UK, Germany, and Australia. If we look at the pricing of the Peloton bike in these countries, we’ll notice some interesting trends. In the UK the Peloton bike is the equivalent of $1640 USD, making it the most expensive of all markets. In Germany, the bike is listed at $1523. In Australia, the bike costs $1359, while in Canada it is priced at $1355. The US version of the bike is $1445. These prices suggest that Peloton may be pricing its products differently based on market demand and competition.
Canadian Market Analysis
While we cannot officially confirm the exact price of the Peloton Row in Canada, we can make an educated guess based on the available information. The Peloton Tread in Canada is currently priced at $3845 CAD, which is slightly less (2845.20 USD equivalent) than the US price of $2995. However, it’s worth noting that the tread is typically more expensive than the bike or rowing machine due to its larger size and features. In the United States, Peloton recently dropped the price of the Tread and Row to below the $3,000 mark, now listed at $2995 each.
If we assume that the Peloton Row will be priced similarly to the Peloton Tread, then we can expect it to be around $3845 CAD or $2845.20. There is a strong chance this WILL be the cost of the Peloton Row when it is released in Canada, given that there was a pricing page up on the website that briefly showed a price of $3845 CAD. And the fact that it would be the same pricing strategy that Peloton is currently using in the US – keep the Tread and Row the same. However, the pricing page was up only momentarily and could have easily just been a holding place or a typo.
Potential Impact on Peloton’s Business Strategy
Pricing is a key component of any business strategy, and it’s worth considering why Peloton may be pricing its products slightly differently in Canada. One possible reason is that competition is higher in Canada, with alternatives such as NordicTrack, Echelon, and Horizon Fitness all vying for market share. By offering a slightly cheaper price point for the Peloton Row, Peloton may be hoping to capture a larger market share in Canada and compete more effectively against these other brands.
Another possible reason for the lower price in Canada is that Peloton may be trying to capitalize on the strong growth potential in the Canadian market. While Peloton has seen incredible success in the US, there is still significant room for growth internationally. By strategically pricing its products in different markets, Peloton may be able to capture a larger share of the global fitness market.
As always, we’ll be sure to keep our eye out for any further updates on the Peloton Row pricing in Canada.
