Shipping Note: Belts are hand-made to order and may take up to 4 weeks to ship out.

Introducing our newest product in partnership with Pioneer Leathercraft - the affordably priced, yet uniquely featured "Kabuki Strength" leather lever belt.

Sizing Chart based on waist sizes (in inches):

  • X-Small- 22″-31″
  • Small- 27″- 36″
  • Medium- 31″-40″
  • Large- 35″-44″
  • X-Large- 39″-48″
  • XX-Large- 43″-52″
  • XXX-Large- 47″-56″

Like our (anti-fragile) belt, this is a 13mm full-grain leather belt with a full 4" width. 

What sets it apart from every other belt on the market, is that we've worked with Pioneer to create the very first "taper" on the belt that allows for less gap between the belt surface and the lifter. Those of you who've used a thick power belt in the past know exactly what this gap is! 

This fits our philosophy of creating even 360 degree IAP distribution equally in the lifter's midsection. From a comfort standpoint, lifters will notice an immediate improvement in comfort and wearability, thereby eliminating the one flaw that drives people away from using lever belts.

Our design reduces the gap from 13mm to 4mm, which in our experience makes for a much more comfortable belt, leading to better IAP and performance.

Official Belt Specifications:

  • 4" belt
  • 13mm thickness
  • Raw leather hide
  • Proprietary "taper" to decrease gap between lifter and belt
  • Embossed "Kabuki Strength" logo with squat face letter "U"
  • Patented Lever

Keep in mind you are not getting a generic leather belt made in china, or imported then embroidered. These are the highest quality leather belts available, made by hand right here in the USA by skilled leatherworkers and craftsmen. This is an iconic belt that will stand the test of time, both functionally and as a collectors item!

  • As far as the sizing goes, where should we be measuring? I wear a 38"-40" pant but I know thats not the same thing. I just don't want to buy one and it be too big/small causing me to return it.

    Here is a link to pioneers instructions on how to measure for a belt: https://generalleathercraft.com/measure-waist-size-pioneer-weightlifting-belts/

  • Is this belt going to be approved for IPF use? Is the belt legal in other federations?

    Pioneer is not one of the brands that is on the IPF approved list, meaning it won't pass gear checks for international competitions. However it does meet the specifications in the USAPL rulebook, and can be used at local USAPL meets.

  • Is it possible to get the belt with no logo or lettering?

    Currently all we offer is the version of the belt advertised here. If you would like you can contact pioneer directly regarding customizations.

  • Are the belts returnable if you order the wrong size?

    Pioneer's return policy can be viewed here: https://generalleathercraft.com/terms/

  • Is this the belt with the "adjustable" lever? I thought I saw a video on IG about a new type of lever.

    Hey Jaime,

    I don't know the adjustable level you're referring to but the lever on these belts is just a standard lever like the ones pioneer uses for all of their other belts

  • Can these sizes be made customizable at all? I know if ordering directly from pioneer they can.

    Currently the two belts we sell are sold as is and without any further customizations
