Introducing the “Pioneer Cut“. It is a Patent Pending design that Steve Strohm designed and partnered exclusively with Pioneer to bring to market. We have taken the existing traditional prong buckle and made it better and more customizable in terms of sizing. Offsetting two lines of holes, this design allows for you to tighten the belt in 1/2″ increments instead of the normal 1” that most companies currently offer. Due to the smaller increments, the belt can be worn at the correct tightness keeping the lifter more safe, and allowing the belt to be unbuckled much easier.

Pioneer Double Thick 4″ Power Lifting Belt Features:

  • Nickel plated rivets & buckle
  • 100% genuine sole leather
  • Made in the U.S.A.

    After owning the Pioneer Cut™ – 10mm Thick – 4″ Power Lifting Belt (see review) – and being absolutely thrilled with it, I decided to order the heavier duty 13mm sole leather belt in the Pioneer Cut single prong configuration.

    To be perfectly honest, I probably do not “need” this heavier duty belt but the 10mm version is so comfortable out of the box that I was willing to give up a bit of comfort for the added support of a 13mm belt, specifically for heavy squat sessions.

    Please be advised this is not simply a 13mm version of the 10mm suede belt. This is one serious piece of kit, composed of two layers of sole leather – with no suede added.

    I expected this belt to be quite a bit stiffer and not as comfortable as my 10mm suede belt but I was somewhat surprised to find it isn’t nearly as unwieldy as I was expecting. (I did opt for the treated leather however). I bought the same (medium) size as my 10mm belt and while noticeably stiffer, it does not rub or cause any discomfort – even when cinched up fairly tight. Unlike my 10mm suede belt that I sometimes forget I am wearing, I definitely know I have this on! The biggest difference involves a bit of extra effort buckling and unbuckling and especially slipping the tongue through the leather retainer loop. I expect this to only improve with continued use and break-in.

    As I did with my other Pioneer belt, I took the micrometer to this one and measured 12.8 – 13.0mm thickness over the length of the belt. Again, very consistent construction! Overall quality and finishing is very good.

    I really notice the benefit of the heavier/stiffer leather when I squat 455# or more. The extra support provided is confidence inspiring.

    While I do think the 10mm belt is probably more than adequate for the majority of users, those powerlifters trying to push maximum weight will appreciate the extra support his belt offers.

    I am sold on Pioneer belts and especially their Pioneer cut design!

    I ordered the 13 mm Pioneer cut to replace my Brahma lever and 10 mm Forever double prong because neither fit too well any more. I wanted a fair bit of adjustability so I could use it for squats and deadlifts, without having to fiddle around with a screwdriver.

    It arrived quickly (and I’m in Australia) and took very little time to break in enough to use. Quality is excellent: it looks and feeling amazing. Very supportive, and the Pioneer cut means I can get a close to perfect fit every day for whatever I need it for.

    This 13mm Pioneer Cut PL belt is serious kit. Definitely not a plastic Velcro belt. Very high quality and it shows in how HEAVY DUTY it is. I did get the treated leather and I cannot imagine what the untreated leather in this thickness of belt would be like; the stiffness of the brand new belt is substantial, right out of the box. I spent about an hour working the leather in my hands and it began to soften. My hands actually got sore trying to flex and roll this thing so I started using my feet to press the bends into the floor. Twisting the belt is nearly futile. I love it. I used a little neatsfoot oil on the outside and it soaked in immediately. It gave the belt a richer, slightly darker finish, and it helped soften it even more. The website picture is spot on for what came out of the box.

    The level of support is AMAZING, but it will be quite a while before it has the level of broken-in comfort that I just can’t wait to have. After the first couple of wearings, I was actually sore (bruised?) in places where the belt made contact. It’s that stiff. I think given a choice I would have gone with a 13mm suede version or even a 10mm belt because this belt is THAT hardcore. However, I do not regret my purchase and I would only recommend it for serious, heavy lifters. This belt is not ideal for casual lifters or high-rep bodybuilders. Go with a 10mm or even 6.5mm. Trust me. I have since gotten used to the stiffness and I am sure the belt is also slowly breaking in.

    The Pioneer Cut design is wonderful. I have two holes that I prefer, one for deadlifts and one for squats. This had never been the case with traditional belts. It was either too tight or too loose given the exercise. Now I have correct tightness every time! I have to say that it does take a bit of effort to don and doff. Even tucking in the tail is rather difficult.
