Peloton has officially issued the following statement: “Peloton Interactive, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has settled its patent infringement litigation against Flywheel Sports, Inc.

“As a condition of the settlement, Flywheel has agreed to immediately cease its use of Peloton’s patented technology, and Peloton has agreed to dismiss its litigation against Flywheel. Flywheel, likewise, has terminated its proceedings against Peloton at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.”

Peloton was represented in the litigation by Steven Feldman of Hueston Hennigan LLP. The cases are Peloton Interactive Inc. v. Flywheel Sports Inc., Nos. 2:18-cv-00390 and 2:19-CV-00317, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
