From Matt at Pioneer:
"The PAL is a modern play on the existing lever and was designed with the “every half inch matters” mindset. This revolutionary product gives the user the ability to finely tune the tightness (1/2″ settings) to get a perfect fit… ON A LEVER BELT! It also, allows for up to 2″ of adjustments before having to change the tightness of the belts. So if you wear your belt tight for squats and a bit looser for deads and/or bench, this belt will be perfect! If all that doesn’t sound good enough, you can also just purchase a lever and attach it to an existing lever belt. It will retrofit most major brands (excluding SBD) as it uses the same hole dimensions as other lever belts already on the market.
The PAL works best with a stiff 10mm and/or any 13mm lever belt. The lever has already been approved by the United States Powerlifting Association HQ, and you should have zero problems in Strongman events. Y’all, this project has been in the works for over two years and I am extremely excited for it to come out and help solve some of the problems the existing belts have had."
The PAL should retrofit fit most major brands of lever belts. You can quickly check to see if it will fit by measuring from the edge your lever belt to the beginning of the holes at the prong receiving end. If the distance is 7/8" or 22mm or less it will fit without any issues. Please see picture here.
If the distance is more than 7/8" or 22mm then you will need to sand or cut down the end of your lever belt or expand the four-prong holes. You can see a video from Matt at Pioneer with tips here.
Please note - At the moment the PAL is only available to purchase separately. If you need a lever belt then please purchase the one you would like and that will come with a standard lever. Then if you would like a PAL please purchase that separately. Eventually, we hope to sell lever belts with PAL as an option but that will not be available any time soon.
