Media Alert – Investment Announcement!

March 18th, 2022 – Birmingham, Michigan – CitySide Ventures and GLAF announce adding Vktry Gear to its portfolio of companies.

VKTRY’s ultra lightweight, carbon fiber base aerospace- grade carbon fiber provides improved athletic performance and enhanced injury protection due to its full-length support, stability, and shock absorption.

VKTRY’s carbon fiber base looks like a single piece, it is actually made from multiple layers of carbon fiber that are hand laid into a mold and then placed into an autoclave for hours. This gives the VKTRY Insole the right combination of stability and flexibility. VKTRY’s unique, arched shape allows maximum energy storage and energy return during the natural movement of the foot – an athlete’s gait. The carbon fiber base plates are covered with a proprietary foam cushion to provide heel stability, arch support and superior comfort.

We are very excited to be a part of a company with ground breaking technology.  The company proved that there is an emanse market for its product with impressive sales numbers. Highly capable management team and industry experts and most of all, a loyal customer base. We are pleased to be a part of the journey. ”  – Doron York – Chairman/CEO  at CitySide Ventures
