G-SAVR Tethering System Review

by Brian Mullin on February 15, 2016


The G-SAVR is a compact tethering system that secures any Garmin Edge computer, Garmin VIRB camera, and other electronic devices to a bike for the ultimate in safety. It keeps the device attached to the bike no matter what happens to the mounting systems, preventing it from falling off and damaging or losing your valuable and expensive computer or camera.

Although I have never personally had it happen, the Garmin Edge mounting wings can sometimes break, creating a catastrophic ejection of the device. Also, during high-speed rides in rough terrain or the event of a crash, the device may disengage, or bike mount might break.


The two piece G-SAVR system uses a high-tensile stringed loop that attaches to the electronic device and a soft webbing with an adjustable slider that has a locking cam that tightens down onto the bike. It can be attached at multiple locations, including the bikes computer mount, stem, handlebar or cable housing. The two parts connect to each other with a quick-release buckle, so the device can easily detach after a ride.

The simple G-SAVR retails for $9.99 from Amazon, weighs 10 grams and can be easily and quickly moved from one bike to another. It’s 6.5 inches long and 0.5 inches wide and once installed is unobtrusive.

Garmin’s lanyards work just fine as do many cheaper systems, but the G-SAVR is more robust, stronger and the design makes it more functional for use on bikes.


The two piece G-SAVR tethering system secures any cycling computer and POV camera to a bike and prevents the device from falling off in the event of a mount breaking or the device dislodging. It’s simple to use and install, and the design makes it easy to remove after a ride or swap from bike to bike. The ability to safely and securely prevent damaging your expensive cycling device during any incident makes the G-SAVR an excellent bargain.
