I’ve been using an off brand lifting belt for a few years now. It’s fine even decent. But I wanted one with a lever buckle and I didn’t want to but another imported belt. I ordered this belt about 3 weeks ago. It arrived yesterday. First lift with it was this morning. I’m blown away. It’s absolutely a thing of beauty. Leather is gorgeous and will age beautifully. Lever is rock solid ( I may upgrade to the ratchet. We will see). Weight belts aren’t designed to be comfortable per se. But this one is as comfortable as any of used. I couldn’t be happier.
Amazing belt, easy break in period. The Kabuki Squat face adds an automatic 5% to any lift. The shaved end of the belt makes it incredibly comfortable when locked in, genius idea.
What an outstanding product. Not only is it beautiful but the sturdiness and quality is incomparable against any other belt I’ve ever used/owned. The tapered leather is a massive win for a uniform feeling all around when I lock in the lever and brace. The pal v2 is perfect. Fresh out the box the first day I received it, I set a deadlift pr. Even tho the belt isn’t broken in at all I was able to perform like that because of the adjustability that unique lever setup provides. I love it I love it. I’ll be using this belt for the rest of my life. Plain and simple. Thank you kabuki strength
Excellent quality, I'd expect nothing less from pioneer. The shave feature is especially nice, makes the belt much more comfortable even for a 13mm. I would definitely recommend this belt.
This is my first lever belt and will likely be my only one. I absolutely love this belt and the craftsmanship is superb. It feels like I have a fortified wall around my core when it matters most. Some call it a safety blanket, I call it dependable. You will not be sorry if you buy this belt. 10/10 would buy again.
