The new Kore Tek Belt features Grade 1 Titanium Buckles, Full-Grain Leather Belts with Flex-Corecenter and our micro track with more adjustment ability (40+ size positions) than any other ratchet belt.   

                                                    Welcome to our 8th Kickstarter Campaign !  

In 2013, we introduced our first Kore track belts right here on Kickstarter and set a record for funding. Since then we’ve sold over 100,000 belts worldwide.

But our goal isn’t to sell the most belts – it’s to sell the best.  Introducing the  >> WORLD’S  FIRST  TITANIUM  TRACK  BELT

Why’s all this such a big deal? Because throughout the day as you work, walk, eat, sleep and play, your waist size fluctuates - in a little – or out a little in small increments. That’s why traditional belts with 5 holes don’t work. The holes are spaced too far apart. They never seem to match your waist. 

But Kore belts are different. Our track system, sewn into the back of the belt, has 40+ micro size positions to adjust with - each just ¼” apart. It actually locks to your exact waist size every time you slide it on. It’s the best-fitting, most comfortable belt you will ever wear.   

For the first time ever, we’re introducing 4 solid, grade 1 titanium ratchet buckles. Each buckle features a 2 millimeter thick body, with alloy undercarriage (1.5 to 2 oz. total weight). Titanium is one of the strongest, lightest metals known to man, and used to make rocket ships and supersonic jets.  These buckles do a lot more than just look good.  

The Leather is Full-Grain (1-3/8 inches or 35mm wide) and chrome tanned to resist the fading and scratching you get from vegetable tanning.  Full-Grain is the highest grade of leather and actually improves with age.  

Next we added a proprietary Flex-Core center for added durability and strength.  This strong, fibrous core ads strength and extends the belt life. Backers can choose between classic or pebble-grain in black or brown.  

Next we added a proprietary Flex-Core center for added durability and strength.  This strong, fibrous core ads strength and extends the belt life. Backers can choose between classic or pebble-grain in black or brown. 

Each belt comes extra long and in One-Size that FITS ANY waist size from 24” to 44”. You trim it to your size in minutes with household scissors. Simply locate your pant size on the back of the belt using the Printed Ruler Marks (no measuring needed).  Add 4 inches and cut. Then clamp the belt into the buckle and wear. If the belt is too long, remove the buckle and cut off another inch. It's that easy. 

After the campaign ends we will email you a simple Survey asking for your buckle and belt choices (styles and colors) and your shipping address. 

Now you don’t have to choose between comfort and style – you get them both.

Here I am, a half a year later, still using the belts every day and they're still rocking. These are, hands down, the best belts I've ever used and the best Kickstarter project I ever backed. – Stephen Cooper

It really is the best belt I've ever had and it's true, I never wear my old leather belts with holes anymore just these ratchet belts. I got my first trakline belt in 2013 when they first came out on kickstarter for the first time and now I have 5 of them and love them all. - Jason Marks

Received my Eurkea buckle and black & brown belts. Trimmed and wearing and I can already say this is the best belt I have ever worn. I will soon order a few more buckles! Many thanks!!! - Budd Margolis 

_____________________________________________________________ 

This is by far one of the best belts ever. How many times in your life have you been gaining or losing weight and needed a hole in your belt where there wasn't one? Not to mention, perhaps you have thicker clothing and/or more layers making your normal belt hole too tight. This belt is the solution! I purchased two different colors and got the hanger which is excellent and very convenient. Another great feature of these belts is since you do not have to push the post into a belt hole while you pull the belt backwards day after day, you will not have that worn out crease that looks hideous if you use a different belt hole. - W. Barnum

____________________________________________________________ 

These are excellent belts! I just ordered another one from your website. - Stuart Sato 

___________________________________________________________ 

Excellent product well made and comfortable you guys rock...!!! - Tim O'Neill 

________________________________________________________ 

I meant to comment a few weeks ago when I got my Trakline. It's awesome. Great belt. Great quality, Great look. I'm very impressed. Now I just need nicer shoes to compliment it. - Chris Hoppe 

_______________________________________________________ 

My belt arrived a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that I am impressed. I use it every day and it has been great. The quality is awesome and it looks great. So thank you. - Mark Christiansen 

________________________________________________________ 

I'm using it; and it rocks so HARD that I've already ordered another one! - Enthusiastic Student 

________________________________________________________ 

I've been wearing my belt every day for several months now. I've never been more impressed with a belt, this is the way all things should happen, it just works & works very, very well. Fine job done by all involved. - Harley Aultman

_________________________________________________________ 

I love the belt and the quality in manufacturing and design is evident in everything. - Scott Burns 

_________________________________________________________ 

Love it. I have to go through a metal detector daily at the courthouse. When putting it back on, it made that distinctive ratcheting sound - caught the attention of a couple of Sheriff's deputies I know who were manning the entrance. They asked about the belt and I was more than happy to give a little demo and sales pitch. - Joe Dane 

________________________________________________________ 

Wow ! Okay, its hard to get excited about a belt, but this is an amazing product. I wear it nearly every day. It functions beautifully and is durable. - James Farrow  

_________________________________________________________ 

Just wanted to say THANK YOU! I'm all the way from Malaysia! Amazing quality and was definitely worth the wait. - Aaron Lee Wei-Ren 

________________________________________________________ 

I have to say that this is the most comfortable belt that I've ever worn. MUCH better than using conventional belts. And I've worn them all my life! I think I'll take advantage of the discount and order a couple more. Well done guys and keep up the good work :) - Chris Guerin 

_________________________________________________________ 

This is definitely now my favorite belt. I'm ordering another for myself and one for my wife right now. - Christopher Campbell 

_________________________________________________________ 

I received my buckle and two belts on Saturday. After trimming one of the belts to fit I trimmed the second one as well. I just ordered a second buckle because I don't want to scratch them switching belts. Great belt. - Richard W Decker

________________________________________________________ 

Lovely new leather smell! It fits amazingly and the build quality is superb, well up there with the stupidly-expensive designer products. - Roland Steadman 

_________________________________________________________ 

The buckle design is simple and sleek. The mechanics of the buckle are very simplistic as well and easy to use. Best Kickstarter product I ever got. I will never buy belts from another company as long as I live. Keep 'em coming. - Steven Steckler

Risks and challenges

This is our 8th Kickstarter campaign since we launched our first KORE Trakline belt project back in 2013. Since that time we've managed to launch and successfully deliver 7 new products to tens of thousands of backers. And I think we can say with some certainty, that we met, or exceeded, most backers expectations in regards to product quality, design and function.

Of course, along the way we made a few mistakes and learned some valuable lessons.

For example, we make a habit of communicating frequently and openly with our backers regarding the manufacturing progress and shipping status. We do an update every 1-2 weeks after the project is completed.

Goal # 1 is to deliver a well-designed, high quality product that exceeds Backer expectations and that backers love. As proof with past campaigns - after receiving their Trakline belts over 40% of the backers visited our online store to purchase a 2nd, 3rd and 4th belt .

Nevertheless, we understand moving forward this is a new project, with its own set of challenges and that past successes don't eliminate all the future risks involved.

The biggest challenge as always for us when creating a new product, is timing. We strive to get our projects completed on time, with no snafus. There are molds and tooling to create and we test at each step of the process. But if delays do happen, we always keep backers "in the loop" as to what's going on and when they can expect their reward.

This time we have already begun the manufacturing process by placing our first order with the factory. So this should expedite the process.

All things considered - we feel like backers can be confident and assured - they're going to get a great product, in a timely manner.
