Pioneer Hybrid Belt

(7 customer reviews)

The Pioneer Hybrid Belt is now born… and it is like a traditional nylon belt and a Pioneer leather belt had a baby. The Hybrid has the ease of use/comfort of a Velcro belt, and the support that is similar to a leather belt which is definitely a win-win. The idea behind this belt was to offer a product that is a bit less specific to just powerlifting. This belt is geared toward cross-training, Olympic lifting, general training, and strongman! That said, it can definitely still be used for powerlifting style training, but cannot be used for competition. These are 4″ all the way around, and do have an overlap in the front for you to brace against.

  • Made with vegetable tan shoulder leather
  • 1000d Cordura Packcloth w/ Kryptek
  • Mil-spec Velcro(tm) brand hook and loop
  • Nickel Plated Seamless Roller Buckle
  • Made in the USA

    Just wanna say I’ve been waiting for a belt like this to exist! I’m in love with my belt. This is by far 1000x better than any typical nylon belt. All bs aside my Oly lifts have gone up because this belt.I trust my hybrid belt when I’m lifting heavy. I’ve recommended to all my crossfit friends and they have used my belt and have said they will be ordering a belt for themselves. Results don’t lie. Team Pioneer Crossfit!

    This belt is my second pioneer belt in my gym bag. I went with a solid lever belt as my first which works perfect for my heavy days when deadlifting and squatting. I decided to purchase this hybrid belt for my lighter and more mobile workouts and I could not be any happier!

    It is really comfortable and gives just about the same amount of support as my lever belt. Absolutely perfect is the only way I can describe this belt. The velcro is really heavy duty and the color is perfect. I know they’re coming out with more color combos so there may need to be a third belt in my gym bag!

    The wide velcro strap makes the belt feel very secure when fastened. The Velcro strap also wraps around the entire belt rather than stitching 2 shorts pieces on each end like my old “non-pioneer” soft belt. The quality of this hybrid belt matches that of my 4″ – 13mm prong belt.

    My 1st pioneer belt. Easy 5/5. I’ve used about a dozen or so velcro style belts and this easily tops the list. Heavy front and back squats feel way more stable and I definitely notice I’m able to be more upright and tight on clean and jerks. The design is great too. When customization comes out I know I’ll be ordering another.

    Awesome belt. I used it for “lighter days” and days where I need a little more movement. It’s a great addition to the gym bag. If you’re on the fence, just get it. Thank yourself later.

    Fantastic. I have a traditional prong belt but I’m pretty lean and find it tough to get to a fit I like, and hate messing with the prong buckle between sets. I’ve gone for lesser nylon belt in many cases for easy on and off, though it had less support.

    No more compromise with this belt. Easy on/off and adjustability with more backbone in the belt. Believer in my first session with this thing.

    This belt is truly unique and an exceptional piece of craftsmanship. It provides ample support for heavy lifts without the bite associated with a standard belt. It is also a good tool to help cue bracing for me as it gives great feel 360 degrees around my torso.
