Cycle Saver Pepper SprayHandlebar Pepper Spray Mount

After years of experience using cycling as a training tool to help national and world inline skating champions and Personal Savers founders, Chad Smith and Derek Downing train.  They came up with a sleek way to mount a pepper spray bottle to a bikes handlebars.  Just like skating, when they were riding their bikes, they had dogs nipping at their feet and always came across unruly motorist.

Being defenseless out on a country road is something every cyclist, would like to avoid.  When your out pedaling away with nothing to defend yourself with, you may decide to take an alternate route or go back from which you came.  With the Cycle Saver, pepper spray for biking, you don’t have to defenseless any longer.

The Cycle Saver was designed to be used by hardcore cyclists and recreation bikers with its low weight and out of the way mounting position.

The Cycle Saver pepper spray uses a simple plastic mounting system for your handlebars.  The U shaped mount, lets the ½ oz pepper spray bottle snap in between the U for an easy snap in, snap out system.  The U shaped mount lets you quickly and easily grab the pepper spray bottle to spray any dog or violent motorist.  Once you use the pepper spray, you snap it back and be on your way, while the attacker is incapacitated.

The ½ oz bottle of pepper spray shoots in a ballistic stream, so it will help you take aim on your bike. The pepper spray fans out, so your able to hit the dog or attacker right where you want to.  We do suggest that you dismount off your bike first, so not to crash while you’re shooting the spray.

Where can I buy the Cycle Saver pepper spray?

You can purchase the Cycle Saver pepper spray on our  online store as well as replacement bottles of pepper spray and extra Cycle Saver mounts for other bikes.

If you would like to visit the Cycle Savers store page, click HERE to purchase the Cycle Saver pepper spray for the low, low cost of $10.95.  A small price to pay to be protected on the open roads.

10 Walking Safety Tips

Wrist Saver - Wristband pepper spray for runners, walker and hikers10 Walking and Running Safety Tips

You can never be to safe when you’re out running or walking.  With crime rates high, you always need to observe certain rules of safety whenever you’re working out.

This is always important but extremely important when you’re walking at night.  If you can follow these simple 10 walking safety rules, you’ll increase your odds of a safe, enjoyable walk.

Please share these with all your friends, it could help save a life some day.

1. Self-Defense:  Always carry a Personal Saver product to get you out of sticky situations.  We recommend the Wrist Saver pepper spray product since its designed for runners, walkers and hikers.  The Wrist Saver is light weight, comfortable and comes with a ½ oz pepper spray bottle along with an LED light, ID card and reflective edging.

2. Face Traffic: Your first choice should be walking on sidewalks or bike paths.  If must walk on the road, always walk in the direction of oncoming traffic.

3. Never Walk Alone:  Walk with a training partner.  This will not only increase your safety when walking, but will also make your walk more enjoyable.  If you’re not able to walk with a training partner, always let someone know where you’ll be walking and what time you expect to return.

4. Wear the Correct Clothing:  If you’re walking at night, dress to be seen.  Drivers in the early morning or a night are rarely looking out for walkers.  Always wear bright clothing with some sort of reflective material.  The Wrist Saver pepper spray product will help out in this area with the wristband being reflective and the LED light moves with your wrist, so you can be seen up to a mile away.  The worst type of clothing to wear in the dark is a black, navy or blue tracksuit, shorts or t-shirt.  This type of clothing will make you virtually invisible to the oncoming traffic.

5. Walk Defensively:  Assume that oncoming traffic and turning cars don’t know the ‘pedestrian has the right-of-way’ rule.

6. Change Up Your Routes:  Keep one or two steps ahead of any potential muggers.  If you change up your routes and times that you walk, it’s very unlikely a mugger will be able to predict when you’ll be out walking.  Plus, this keeps your workout fresh.

7. Carry Some ID:  Always carry some type of identification in case of an emergency.  This is another reason to carry the Wrist Saver pepper spray.  The Wrist Saver has a built ID card slot and comes with an ID card for you to fill out your information.  If you’re away from home on a trip, always write down where you’re staying.

8. Toss the Jewelry:  Keep all your valuables at home.  You’re just asking to get mugged if you’re flashing a gold necklace or bracelet.  The only accessory you need is a wrist watch and a Wrist Saver.

9. Leave the Music Home: If you’re distracted by your favorite song, you won’t be alert to any potential dangers, be it a dog, an oncoming car or the sounds of someone running up behind you.

10. Keep to Your Right:  If you’re walking on a cycling path or greenway, always walk on the right hand side, so bikers and faster walkers or runners can easily pass.

What Is Pepper Spray?

Posted on January 26th, 2013

Share this posting, you could help save a life, some day.

Pink Pepper Spray For WomenIf you’ve ever bitten into a hot chili pepper that was just a little too spicy for you to handle, then you might know how difficult it is to get the burning sensation in your mouth to go away. The immediate pain can be unbearable, and no matter how much water you drink, it just doesn’t seem stop.

Now, imagine if you felt that same burning sensation all over your face and in your eyes, nose, and throat. It would be excruciating. This is the basis behind a solution known as pepper spray. Since 1973 pepper spray has been used by law enforcement as a way to subdue violent, aggressive or uncooperative subjects. Many people also use it as a personal self-defense tool to fight off attackers.

Pepper spray is made from an extract of chili peppers and usually comes in an aerosol canister so you can spray it quickly and easily. Since it’s portable and easy to use, pepper spray is a popular option for both law enforcement and personal use. When sprayed into the face of an attacker, it’s extremely irritating to the skin, eyes, mouth, throat and lungs. Its effect is immediate and powerful, and it can distract a person long enough for you to escape an assailant, or for a police officer to take control of a subject.

Another reason pepper spray is so widely used is that, most of the time, exposure has no lasting effects. The immediate impact may be intense, but after a few hours, the effects should wear off completely. This makes it a generally safer option than using guns, chemical deterrents or Tasers, which in some cases can lead to permanent health problems or even death.

What Pepper Spray Is and How It’s Used

The active ingredient in pepper spray is oleoresin capsicum (OC), a natural oil found in many types of hot peppers, including cayenne peppers and other chili peppers. OC contains a compound called capsaicin, which is what’s responsible for the spicy sensation when you eat a hot pepper. It’s odorless, colorless, and even flavorless, but just one milligram (about 0.00003 ounces) of pure capsaicin is enough to cause blisters to form on your skin.

Pepper spray is usually dispensed from an aerosol canister. To make it easier to spray, OC oil is mixed with a water-based or oil-based solution. It’s also mixed with a propellant, a solution that allows it to shoot outward, and then the entire solution is pressurized inside the canister. Using an aerosol canister allows you to spray farther — and in many cases wider — than other types of spray containers.

The Effects of Pepper Spray

When you hold a pepper in your hand, it probably doesn’t feel any hotter than if you were holding an apple or a plum. But when the pepper comes into contact with your lips or your tongue, you can definitely feel the heat. This is because the capsaicin in the pepper reacts with the nerve endings in your body’s mucous membranes that are sensitive to heat and cold. This explains why biting into a spicy pepper can actually feel like your mouth is burning.

Because capsaicin is the same component that makes peppers seem hot, its potency is measured in Scoville heat units (SHU) — a heat scale used to rate the heat level of peppers. The overall heat level is based on the amount of capsaicin present. Typical pepper spray is rated between about 500,000 and 5,000,000 SHU. By comparison, a jalapeño pepper is only around 8,000 SHU, and a habanero is close to 350,000 SHU.

The severity of the effects of pepper spray varies depending upon the amount of pepper spray that’s used, the strength of the spray and where it’s sprayed. If sprayed directly into a person’s face, the effects may be more intense or long-lasting. When pepper spray is sprayed at an attacker, the burning sensation they would feel is just the tip of the iceberg.

If you were sprayed in the face with pepper spray, you would immediately feel a burning sensation in your eyes, nose and mouth, and possibly even your throat and on your skin. This burning feeling, if left untreated, can last anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. Your eyes would become irritated and probably swell shut, causing temporary blindness that can last from 15 to 30 minutes. You might also begin coughing and find it difficult to breathe as your throat swells — this can last from 3 to 15 minutes.

He Won’t Take Running From Me

This is part of a blog posting on Running For Bling… Please read the rest of the blog posting via the link below and give Elizabeth some encouragement.  This situtation is the main reasons we started Personal Savers.

He Won’t Take Running From Me

by Elizabeth on November 24, 2012
I had 10 miles on my training schedule for Saturday mornings run. I was physically and sexually assaulted on my run at mile 8.2. I will forewarn you, this post will be long. I want to get the details out, for me mentally, for those in Mobile to be aware, and for the safety of each and every female runner I know.

I haven’t had to run in Mobile in almost a year. Running around my dads house can be challenging, there are no sidewalks and I don’t love the neighborhoods next to us. I chose to go run at Cottage Hill Park. The loop at the park is right under 2 miles and there are plenty of people out and about. I also planned on running in the neighborhoods around it-all of them have sidewalks and are all nice, middle upper class, clean areas. I used to run in the downtown area and there are two reasons I didn’t this weekend: old sidewalks (issues with my ankle) and the sketchy homeless people.

I started my run a few minutes before 8am. I looped the park and headed out on Knollwood towards Grelot. I turned left on Grelot to Hillcrest and turned around and ran back up Grelot to Regency Oaks neighborhood. I looped the neighborhood and headed back out on Grelot to University. I decided to also do Regency neighborhood to run by a childhood friends home. Throughout my run, I saw several runners on the road. I felt very safe. People were out in the yards and plenty of people driving up and down the street in Regency (this is a big cut-through neighborhood). I remember passing a woman, also running, and nodding to her and headed back onto Grelot, a mile or so later.

By the time I was near the park, I needed another 2 miles or so. I decided to turn into Sutton Place neighborhood. I don’t/didn’t know the neighborhood well, just that it made a loop and I knew it would be close to the perfect mileage for the end of my run. Again, it’s a nice neighborhood. I had a friend from high school that lived there.

Personal Safety Tips For Women

Posted on November 27th, 2012

By Jamie Cohen- January 6, 2006

Protect Yourself

Personal Safety Tips for Women

Some 1.9 million women are physically assaulted annually in the United States, and 15 percent to 25 percent of all American women will report a sexual attack or rape at some time in their lives, according to studies conducted by the Justice Department and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

And experts say that because the majority of sexual assaults go unreported, the numbers from these studies may represent only a fraction of the violent of crimes against women.

But while these numbers may seem frighteningly high, safety authorities are quick to point out that women need not view themselves as helpless victims. ABCNEWS’ Healthy Woman asked crime and safety specialists the most effective precautions a woman can take when walking alone to keep herself from becoming a statistic:

Dress to Kill. Clogs, high heels, and tight skirts are hard to run and fight in, while scarves and long necklaces are easy to grab. If possible, modify your fashion style or wear comfortable clothing when walking alone. You can always change into dress-up clothes later. Or, think through how you would fight in your dress-up clothes. Would you kick off your high heels or hike your skirt up around your hips to run or kick?

Make Eye Contact. It may be your first instinct to lower your gaze as you walk to your destination. But looking straight into the face of potential enemies is the better option. “Eye contact may scare off attackers because they fear you will be able to identify them,” says Mary Ellen Burns, a spokesperson for the Boston Police Department.

Keep Eyes and Ears Open, Hands Free. It is important to be alert to who and what is around you. Talking on a cell phone or listening to headphones makes you easy prey for a predator. The only reason you should be using your mobile phone is notify a friend of your whereabouts or to call for help. Also, limit the number of bundles you have to carry by using a backpack or bag with a shoulder strap. This will ensure that your hands are free to defend.

Be Lazy, Take the Elevator Over the Stairs. And when in the elevator, stand in front of the doors, then if someone you feel uneasy about gets on with you, you can step off immediately.

Fight Your Inner Woman. Experts say that women tend to be sympathetic — don’t be! History has shown that serial killers and other criminals often play on the sympathies of unsuspecting women to lure them into dangerous situations. If someone asks for the time, directions, or help in or around their car, be as courteous as possible but keep moving. You can always assist the stranger by making a phone call to police from a safe location, or by finding others to go back and help with you.

Change It Up. Regularly change your walking routine. Plan out a few different routes that you can take and mark out “safe houses” in your mind at intervals along the way. In the event of attacks, you can stop at these shops or homes where you know you will be safe. Try to incorporate these houses every time you vary your route

About Personal Savers


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...
