Golani Cyclist Protection System

Recommended Posts

Bicycle hijacking is a huge problem in South Africa. Cyclists, especially mountain bikers, are targeted due to the value of the cycles and the fact that they very often ride alone or in very small groups, through very secluded areas.

http://www.golaniprotect.co.za/product_images/uploaded_images/heinrich-small.jpgHeinrich Hayes, the inventor of the Golani Protect Cyclist Protection System, lives and breathes personal protection. His impressive CV contains the following:

- Certified Instructor of Golani True Krav Maga system

- Various Weapons Trained (Certified SAPS & Golani - Specialist Security)

- Certified Air Marshall

- Certified SWAT Officer

- Certified Close Protection Officer

Two years ago Heinrich wanted to develop a way for cyclists to protect themselves against attacks from criminals wanting to harm them and steal their posessions. The Golani Cyclist Protection System is the result of this need to help cyclists.

The Golani Cyclist Protection System consists of two major components:

  1. Hardware

    1. A telescopic baton with two very unique ways of attaching it to you bicycle
    2. A 20ml direct spray Pepper Spray cannister with a quick release mount that can be fitted to your bicycle handlebars

[*]Training

  1. Successfully defending yourself against an attack takes more than just being armed with a baton and pepper spray
  2. It is very important to know how to handle yourself and your weapons
  3. For this reason we have developed training that will teach you exactly how to handle yourself
  4. Everyone that buys the Golani Cyclist Protection System will automatically qualify for a free training session at one of our studios nationwide

Went to a demo with Heinrich & co - very nice guy, and genuine. And completely effective at self defense!

 

I would (will) have a look at this. And definitely go for the training. They are down to earth and there is no mucking about with their technique.

Ever actually done the work?

 

A cyclist is detached from his/her bike in a split second in a hi jacking.Here all your protection is attached the the bike?

 

A knife clipped in your pocket/hydration pack or a ASP baton in the pocket would be a better option?

Take this anyway you want.

 

Security expert maybe - but cyclist definitely not.

Go buy any of the bikes pictured, go out for a few cycles, and rethink your strategy.

 

road bike - on stopping and dismounting, your family jewels collide with your baton.

NO THANKS - bring on the baddie, i'll take my chances

 

road bike - changing grips between downhills, uphills and level ground, that pepperspray looks too much in the way.

If you trigger it accidentally, you will be the fastest person up the hill, trying to escape the dense pepper fog.

 

MTB - that lop sided baton mount is a no go. On tight sections you will be scraping a lot of trees on the RHS.

Very bad, and will be cursed for life, by the tree huggers.

Also, with the sensibility of saving weight, you are going to be putting 10% of the bikes weight off balance?

 

Ditto for the pepper spray.

 

If anything you are protecting your self with, can be taken off you easily, it can be used against you.

No krav maga is going to help you there.

 

Unfortunately, the raw truth of things as they stand ....

we go out to enjoy ourselves with our sporting equipment .....

they go out armed appropriately according to their intentions .....

 

a third force is needed to look after our benefits, and kick the baddies in the :blink: :wacko: :cursing:
