10mm Thick - Untreated Stock Pioneer Cut Power Lifting Belt

(9 customer reviews)

The all new 10mm Stock belts are here! Although they are “new”, this version of the Pioneer Belt has been around for decades as we sold these to 10,000’s of folks and 100’s of resellers. The 10mm untreated stock belts are made using full grain vegetable tanned sole leather. Smooth outside natural finish and rough unfinished on the inside to help combat
slippage. Although this belt is “bare bones”, it is ideal for those of you who want a strong, heavy duty belt quickly and less expensive than a custom belt. Nickel plated rivets and buckle. The Pioneer Cut version will have our patent pending staggered holes to help with those “in between” days and the Lever version will be fully compatible to the PAL when they come out later this year (2019).

    Without a doubt, the finest lifting belt I’ve ever seen. Beautiful leather and outstanding craftsmanship! Belt is very comfortable and provides excellent support! 5-stars from Houston, TX 👍🏻👍🏻🤣

    All parts of this belt are made extremely well, and their proprietary hole spacing is ingenious; you can use different holes for different lifts, and the 1/2″ spacing allows for minute adjustments. Shipping was extremely fast, and on a side note, the customer service was prompt and accommodating, helping me through the ordering process.

    Always wondered why lifters spent so much money on a fricken belt…now I know why after 35 years…best belt I’ve ever owned…worth every penny.

    The picture doesn’t really do this belt justice. But who cares about looks? First day in the gym and PR crushed with ease. I received the belt a week from the day I ordered it (much faster than expected). Love the Pioneer Cut.

    I’ve had a double suede 10mm belt (single-prong, not “Pioneer-cut”) powerlifting belt from these guys for about 4 years, which I liked we’l enough — until now. Pros of that one: attractive, flexible right out of the box, reasonably priced. Cons: The 1-inch spacing of the holes made it hard to get tightened right as weight or clothing (t-shirt to sweatshirt) changed; only 6.5 – 7 mm of really supportive sole leather. I wanted more a more supportive belt for squatting, but based on reading various articles and reviews really did not want to got to a 13mm belt, which I thought would be harder to adjust and not as comfortable. So I decided to give the this 10mm Pioneer-cut stock belt a try.

    Wow! Am I glad I did! I love the finer 1/2″ adjustability of the “Pioneer-Cut” feature. And without question belt is more supportive, with a full 10mm of true sole leather. It was reasonably flexible right out of the box, though I have also been treating it with Bick 4 leather conditioner to accelerate the break-in. In principle this belt should be almost as supportive as the 13mm double suede belts, which have the same thickness of full grain sole leather, but at a significantly higher price and possible sacrifice in wearing comfort due to the extra thickness. As for appearance, I find the raw leather of the stock belt to be very attractive, and even moreso after treating it a couple of times with the Bick 4. I also noticed that it is easier to cinch the belt up tight due to the smooth leather outer surface. The suede surface on the double-suede belts adds a considerable amount of friction that makes it harder to pull the tongue though the buckle to tighten the belt.

    All in all I can’t see why any powerlifter who cares most about good support and comfort at a very reasonable price point would not go for this stock belt, or perhaps the similar but thicker 13mm stock belt, if you’re a really big guy into squatting with 600 lbs or more and willing to spring for the additional 30. Why pay extra for the suede, which adds thickness without adding support, gives you only 6.5 mm of full grain sole leather (for the 10mm double suede version), and makes the belt harder to tighten? For me, this was the proverbial no-brainer.

    My first belt. Bought the discount one, and it was well worth it. Defect on mine was very minor like one small area of glue separation. It was untreated, so I think it took more time breaking in compared to the treated one. However, with all the cost savings of going discounted stock belt, it was well worth it. It arrived in 2 days for me which was awesome. Strong, beautiful belt. Strongly recommend.

    If you’re looking at the stock power lifting belt chances are you were like myself and wanted to dabble in getting a belt for weightlifting. Whatever the reason may be or how you got here doesn’t so much matter, what matters is you’ve stumbled onto what can only be described as a wearable golden ticket. From the support it offers, to the minimal break in period it just works. Plain and simple. If you’re on the fence do yourself a favor, hop off, grab a belt and just wonder what you’ve been doing all these years without one.

    One last shout out to the lads over at Pioneer, the speed and service at which it all came was incredible. I live out in the middle east and before I could even blink it was at my front door. Well done guys keep up the good work.

    I have always used the gym loaner belts when I didn’t understand how to use a weight belt. After learning how to properly breathe and brace my core, this belt is a game changer. The 4″ Pioneer cut 10mm stock belt is perfect for my needs. I recommend this to anyone who is getting serious about lifting and living a healthy lifestyle into middle and older age.
