Pioneer Hybrid / Velcro Belt (Kryptek)
Pioneer Hybrid Belt (Kryptek)
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.

First off, customer service was great. Order was sent out incredibly quickly with great communication and I'm definitely going to be ordering from 9 for 9 again where possible.
I love this belt, it really is the best of both worlds. Support feels fantastic and able to get exactly the right fit thanks to the velcro closure which really holds firm. No break in period, great to use as soon as it came out of the package. The styling is nice too, subtle pattern blends into the belt really well.
One note of caution, I have caught some of my additional lockdown "mass" in the closure of the belt. The 2 ends overlap each other so be sure you have them the right way round or you can end up catching your skin between them
Thanks for your review Steven. Enjoy your Pioneer belt. Happy lifting!
Sturdy and tight, you can really sinch the belt when needed. The belt is stiff and provides great support while doing squats and deadlifts (I don't do the olympic lifts so i can't comment on the more dynamic movements). The velcro strap is wide and holds very well. Loop part of the velcro could be longer though for those with their "off season" power belly ;)
9 for 9 service was great, package received with some sweets and a handwritten thank you note.
Thanks for your review Matthew. We hope that you will enjoy your Pioneer Hybrid Belt. Happy lifting!
