Tapered Weightlifting Belt

By Ikarus Athletics

We're pushing the limits of athletic potential... and it starts with our equipment.

"It fit right off the bat...

I really like this weightlifting belt, great leather and a great color. Very flexible in the beginning. You know some belts are really stiff and hurt your sides but this one fit great even in the beginning, it fit right off the bat. Usually you have to break in leather belts, some are days some are months but this one was ready to go."

Inspiring The Intrinsic Drive For Success

The great all have one thing in common:

They all aim to push the limits of what they do. Regardless of their sport or profession, they strive to be better today than they were before. That’s why we aim to help athletes of all sports push the limits of athletic potential, because we believe human potential is nearly limitless.

Only by pushing that limit will we find out what is truly possible.

One of the ways we’re doing that is by designing and producing the highest quality equipment we can.

Equipment that will work as hard as you do and never stop performing

Through years of training and testing designs we have created a belt that offers everything a high performing Athlete needs:

(Custom designed by an athlete)

  • MAXIMUM STABILITY: through a solid piece of American Leather 
  • PREMIUM COMFORT: with a soft yet sturdy Suede liner
  • PRECISE FIT: with 3/4” hole spacing for fine-tune adjustments
  • CUSTOMIZATION: we offer 20 different colors of suede and over a dozen colors of thread to suit your lifting persona.

We Design Equipment To Help You Perform at Your Highest Level

Whether in the final lift of a competition or the first set in training, an athlete’s focus should not be distracted by equipment that doesn’t fit right or is uncomfortable to use. So, why settle for insufficient equipment? With our Tapered Weightlifting Belt, NO ONE has to deal with those worries anymore.

Built to perform. Built by athletes.

Tips On Selecting The Perfect Size

DO NOT use your Pant Size or the size of a different belt.

We are unable to accept returns or exchanges due to the incorrect size being ordered, so please email us at support@ikarusathletics.com if you have any questions on selecting a size!

Please use the following sizing instructions to find your perfect fit!

• Simply wrap a string or shoelace around your core right at the belly button.

• Keep your abs relaxed and mark the string where the two ends meet. Then measure the string with a tape measure.

• Take this measurement and pick a size where you are closest to the middle of the range.

• For example, if you measure 33” do NOT pick the belt size 26”-33” instead pick the belt size 31”-38”.
This will ensure you will have the best fitting belt!
