This belt arrived to me in Canada in only 3 days, just in time for me to wear It for my 510kg raw squat record. Unfortunately my camera died right before I did it for a set of 10 so there is no video proof?
Thanks for your review Luca. Enjoy your Pioneer powerlifting lever belt. Keep defying gravity!
Im by no means a professional but after a couple of years i reached numbers in lifting which required a belt upgrade and oh boy what a difference this belt made. The flexibility is great and after bearly 15 heavy sessions the belt is becoming more and more comfortable!
No regrets whatsoever, the written notice in my box made me smile - thats what i call engagement! :)

I was in the market for a new belt, in part it was to reward myself for going heavy on Squats and I wanted to get one of the fancy lever action ones. After much consideration, especially in regard to the adjustability of the belt (I like to use different levels of tightness on different lifts) I narrowed my choice down to this one or the SBD. Lets also face it if you are looking at this belt you are interested in an adjustable lever belt and so I'm going to focus on the buckle.
I considered the pro's and con's of each belt, and eventually decided that while the SBD was more 'adjustable', this one was adjustable enough and crucially a lot less to pay.
When it arrived I quickly set it up by screwing in where it looked like it should fit (my tip would be to take a screwdriver with you to your first gym session because you may not dial the width in on the first try and may need to adjust the fit) and then after a couple more adjustments got it dialled in to fit me perfectly.
Once that happened it felt so much more secure and my lifts felt a lot better, because the belt can be made tighter and more supportive it allowed me to brace a lot better when under loads and this helped correct some nagging form issues that tended to creep in on the last lift of a set. The lever buckle also helps with the struggle of getting the belt tight enough.
Being able to adjust the fit through a much smaller range than my old conventional belt helped a great deal and this was essential as when I use the belt on overhead press or bench I don't want it as tight as when I squat. At the same time being able to quickly release the belt made it much more comfortable to use.
As for the actual belt, well it needs to be broken in, the stitching and construction is good and it feels secure. The sizing guide was accurate so follow that.
All in all if you are looking at an adjustable lever belt, this is a very good option, is it better than the SBD, I don't know and frankly I don't think I'll ever need to find out, because I'm happy with this purchase.
Thanks for your detailed and comprehsive review David. We hope that you enjoy your Pioneer belt. Happy training!
