ICON Health & Fitness, which makes NordicTrack fitness bikes, sued Peloton on Thursday alleging patent infringement.




The lawsuit claims Peloton used two features for its new Bike Plus, a swivel monitor and remote resistance control, that were originally developed and patented by ICON.




Peloton itself sued ICON in May, alleging it copied its interactive fitness program and engaged in false advertising.




Peloton said it would fight the lawsuit, and characterized the claims as "a retaliatory filing intended to deflect attention away from ICON's blatant infringement of Peloton's leaderboard technology and other deceptive practices."
