Pioneer Cut™ – 10mm/13mm thick – 3"/4" wide – Powerlifting Belt (Treated Leather)

Regular price £130.95


    ** PLEASE NOTE : Prices for both the 10mm and 13mm are the same as both belts start with the same amount of leather. With the 10mm belt the leather is shaved down to the correct thickness. ** 

    Hand crafted to the highest standards by General Leathercraft Inc. in Texas (USA), Pioneer powerlifting belts are made with the very best materials resulting in a truly world class product. Pioneer belts are backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

    Introducing the “Pioneer Cut“. It is a Patent Pending design that Steve Strohm designed and partnered exclusively with Pioneer to bring to market. Pioneer have taken the existing traditional prong buckle and made it better and more customisable 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.

    Top notch product and help

    Darren’s no-pressure impartial advice was a great help when it came to selecting the right belt for me.
    The belt itself oozes quality and worthy of the reputation the company has forged. Although reasonably comfortable straight of, I spent the day rolling and ‘working’ the belt which has made it pliable. I especially like the off-set double row of holes which allow for both a perfect fit and easy of donning and removing.
    I’d happily recommend both the company and the product to anyone.

    Oozing quality

    A big thank you to Darren for helping select the perfect belt for me today, a Pioneer Cut™ in 13mm, 4” wide in Treated Leather.

    Talk about oozing quality and being worth every penny; a stunning belt and the off-set rows of holes make it easy to get a perfect fit.

    Although reasonably comfortable from the outset, having spent a few hours rolling it in ever tighter loops, it’s becoming much more pliable and even more comfortable.

    All in all, an excellent service with no pressure advice from Darren.

    Added 10kg to my 1RM on first session!!!

    Received my belt today with a hand written note and a pack of Haribo! Amazing service!
    Used the belt today and matched my 220kg 1RM and felt so comfortable I added another 10 to the bar! My back feels incredible and have never felt so safe in a deadlift. Definitely have more in the tank.
    The belt is amazing quality and the pioneer cut is a game changer!
    Couldn't be happier.

    Fantastic quality

    Really impressed with the quality of construction. It seems really well made and solid but also immediately comfortable. Really happy with my purchase. Delivery was speedy and the team at 9 for 9 are really friendly and helpful.

    Unbeatable Quality

    I ordered the 13mm thick belt at 4" wide and I have to say it blew me away, this was my first real belt purchase as previously I had borrowed belts from friends. The first thing I noticed that was despite it being very stiff initially it broke in very quickly (took 2-3 sessions max), however even though with its thickness and width it felt very supportive with me doing deadlifts and not too obstructive when performing them. (I'm quite tall so I had previous issues with belt edges blocking me performing deadlifts) overall I'd definitely recommend this belt!

    Fantastic belt from Pioneer

    I originally ordered the 13mm version but after speaking with Darren I went with the 10mm single prong belt! And oh my goodness that was stiff enough! But in a good way, it's still very comfortable and I had no pinching but the support from the belt is amazing! If you were ever uncertain about these belts then don't be, they are worth every penny! I absolutely love my belt from pioneer! Fantastic service from 9for9 too, thank you guys ❤️

    Great belt

    I’m very happy with my belt. It is a well made product. It only took a couple of sessions to feel broken in and was fairly comfortable from the beginning. The pioneer hole system definitely is useful for anyone who experiences regular bloating or weight fluctuations.

    Great belt

    Purchase was super simple, shipping to Germany took just a couple of days. The belt is flawless. Great fit, great quality, overall 10/10. Probably the only belt I will ever need.

    Thanks for your review Holger! Pleased that you like the belt - it should last you a lifetime. It was also nice to see that you were happy with the service. Wishing you all the best with your training.
    Pioneer Cut™ – 10mm/13mm thick – 3"/4" wide – Powerlifting Belt (Treated Leather

    Amazing belt, hasn't missed a beat since day 1, feels better the longer you use it as you have to break it in to get the best fit. But without a doubt the best belt money can buy, the quality is unmatched by any other in the gym, and will definitely outlast my back haha, would recommend to anyone!

    Thank you so much for your review Nathan - we really appreciate it. We are so pleased you are happy with your Pioneer belt. Happy lifting!
