Peloton officially launched its own private-label clothing line in September, an array of Peloton-branded clothing and accessories made in-house.Peloton had previously sold other companies wares, like Nike and Adidas, and had a co-branding deal with Lululemon, a deal that it terminated for being "burdensome and time-intensive" amid mounting customer demand, Peloton said in the suit. The suit claims that Peloton's break-up with Lululemon was amicable at the time, and that the company didn't have any objections to Peloton terminating the deal or deciding to sell its own apparel.A
