In competitive share of voice

Airfoil helped Peloton Technology surpass its goal in increased SOV in commercial trucking technology, based on annual benchmarks.

Connected commerce

Peloton Technologies, a pioneer in the development and commercialization of automated and connected commercial trucks, partnered with Airfoil to advance its position in the market.  

Our goal was to achieve greater brand awareness and trust among investors and the commercial trucking industry as a whole, which required building confidence in Peloton’s groundbreaking technologies.  

Airfoil was able to exceed all the client’s objectives. We worked closely with Peloton Technologies’ leadership team to develop creative news milestones and experiences that deepened relationships with influential reporters. We also boosted the brand’s social followers, impressions, and engagements to new heights.

Peloton safety report

To introduce an industry report on the safety of the client’s systems, Airfoil secured an exclusive feature story in WIRED. The team hosted WIRED’s lead transportation reporter at Peloton’s HQ for a ride-and-drive safety day, executive interviews, and a full demo of Peloton’s advanced capabilities. The experience resulted in an in-depth article that showcased Peloton as an industry leader.
