Our Company

The idea for Personal Savers was born in 1995 by Derek Downing and Chad Smith, two national and world champion professional inline speed skaters. While training on the open roads in Georgia, they always came across unruly drivers and stray dogs nipping at their feet. Derek's father David Downing owned an in house pepper spray business that sold to police forces worldwide which helped spark the idea of the original Wrist Saver.

The original Wrist Saver was a crude version of itself today but the concept to keep people safe while being active was born. That idea grew into an actual company, but with the strains of traveling for competitions the business was put on hold.

Fifteen years later, with their professional skating years behind them, Chad and Derek's workouts began to focus on running and cycling for triathlons. When they heard of a girl being abducted and murdered while she was running, Derek and Chad decided to revisit the idea of the Wrist Saver. They both knew their simple idea could have saved the girl's life if she had been wearing a Wrist Saver.

Experience in the industry gave Derek and Chad a broader knowledge of design and business. They began to improve on the initial concept and create two new products as well: one for cycling and a general product that could be used when not working out. Thus the Cycle Saver and Personal Saver were born.

With three personal safety product ideas, they decided to move forward and dedicate all of their time and effort into a new company, Personal Savers. With the same dedication that it took them to win championships, there's no doubt that Personal Savers can save lives across America.
