We can now say the Wrist Saver and Personal Saver units can hold up to an official marathon.  Personal Savers owners Derek Downing and Chad Smith completed the Atlanta Marathon around the 4 hour marker with their Wrist Saver and Personal Saver’s clipped on their fuel belts in tacked.  After 26.2 miles of pounding the pavement and promoting safety,  both units were ready to keep the guys safe at the finish line.

Personal Savers would like to thank the Atlanta Marathon and Atlanta Track Club for puttting on such a wonderful running event.

You can purchase both products at the Personal Savers online store.  Buy the Wrist Saver pepper spray Buy the Personal Saver pepper spray

A Great Cycle Saver Review

The Review:

Personal Savers Pepper Spray

I actually really like dogs, but I don’t like big scary ones chasing me in the middle of nowhere. One of the trails I love to ride is the Frisco Highline trail. Its a awesome trail that travels through a few cities and then ventures off into some kinda scary areas. Lets just say if I was to have an issue i’m not sure how long it would be before someone found me. Well its trails like this that got me thinking about some sort of protection device. I wanted something small and simple. I also wanted something that would protect me but not kill an animal or leave it blind. I have zero interest in guns or anything radical like that. So i decided on a system that Personal Savers makes for bicycles.

Its a really slick system that is very light and simple. Mounting it on my bike took about a minute. The mount is so small that I will just leave it on my bike even on days I don’t take the actual pepper spray. The mount itself holds a 1/2 ounce bottle of some serious pepper spray. It is enough for 10-20 10 foot shots. I think this would be a big deterrent to someone who was messing with me.

I have only had the mount and spray a few weeks but I have to say it has made me feel more confident when i am out on late night rides. Its a really great little system that does exactly what I need it to do. Luckily I haven’t needed to try out the actual pepper spray but i am sure it will work great when I need it. Personal Savers also make some other models for runners, skiers, hikers. They make a quality product! Check them out if you are looking for some peace of mind.

What is Pepper Spray

Posted on July 7th, 2011

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

Also referred to as an OC or capsicum spray, pepper spray is really a very effective inflammatory agent that can easily irritate the eyes and result in pain, temporary blindness, and tears. Pepper spray is an organic based agent that comes from cayenne peppers. The spray will normally come in canister form, which is frequently times little enough to be carried inside your pocket or in a woman’s purse.

Once the spray is utilized it’ll immediately result in dilating of the capillaries within the eyes, resulting in temporary blindness, chocking, coughing, and tearing of the eyes. The spray will also trigger an extremely intense burning on the skin and result in nausea. The mucous membranes will also begin to swell, making breathing very difficult. The spray is extremely painful, often resulting in the individual who was sprayed to double over and fall to the ground. It causes temporary incapacitation, due to the fact that the individual won’t be able to breathe or see properly.

Often times the spray is utilized with controlling riots or in self defense situations. Pepper spray is extremely handy to have in violent assault situations, as a violent assault occurs each few seconds in the United States alone. Pepper spray is safer to use than guns or knives. It’s also non lethal.

Pepper spray is fantastic to have around your home, or to carry with you at all times. If a burglar breaks into your home although you’re there, you obviously want some thing to protect yourself with. A can of pepper spray is very effective, and can effortlessly stop somebody from attacking you. All it takes is a direct spray to the eyes.

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...
