Amazon says it has nothing to do with the Echelon ‘Prime Bike’

Amazon has moved to put clear distance between it and Echelon Fitness, a company that produces connected exercise equipment. Yesterday, the company announced that it was making the “Prime Bike,” a stripped-down version of its Peloton-esque Connect Sport spin bike. But, overnight, Amazon released a statement saying that Echelon, and the Prime Bike, have nothing to do with them. 

“This bike is not an Amazon product or related to Amazon Prime. Echelon does not have a formal partnership with Amazon. We are working with Echelon to clarify this in its communications, stop the sale of the product, and change the product branding.” – Amazon

At the time of publication, the Echelon press release that spoke about the Prime Bike and Amazon partnership has been withdrawn.
