A decade ago, Schiek created the first contoured lifting belt on the face of the earth. It quickly changed the industry. Not only did the contoured shape fit the natural curve of the spine, it was extremely comfortable. The Schiek 4-3/4" Power Leather Contour Belt provided optimum support like no other. We knew we had created something special. In fact, we were so proud of the quality of our belts, we backed them with an industry first one-year warranty. Today, it's two years and the quality is still unmatched. Put a Schiek around your waist. You'll quickly understand why we're the premium belt of choice for novice lifters and professionals alike. Covered under U.S. Patent 5,146,488 & 5,086,758.
