The Spire IV features all new proactive feeding logic. Unlike previous Spire models, which required constant sensor readings from every shot (with the potential for adding in extra unnecessary spins while shooting, and could potentially result in slow rates of fire from a sensor malfunction), the Spire IV features the new Proactive Logic. Now your Spire IV starts feeding the instant the first shot is fired, and continues to feed automatically, without relying on continuous sensor readings until the stack is full. This is the same proven technology incorporated into the CTRL loader, which works more consistently and reliably on every type of marker.
Spire IV iFI Wireless Technology
The Spire IV has been upgraded to work with the Virtue Ace wireless iFI platform. This new feeding technology allows for a tight integration between the loader and the gun and also maintains backwards compatibility on guns without iFI technology using the new Proactive Feeding logic pioneered on the CTRL loader.
When the Spire IV is paired with the Virtue Ace or iFI compatible boards, the loader maintains instant communication with the marker's eyes which allows for significant improvements as both the gun and the loader are now synced together for faster and more consistent feeding, stopping and idle performance. And if the gun's eyes are turned off, dirty or if the Spire IV is used on a different gun, the Spire IV automatically transitions to the new proactive feeding mode, which will automatically feed with every shot until the stack is full.
Spire IV Upgraded Cosmetics
To help differentiate the Spire IV and give this latest model of the Spire family a new look, we've upgraded the color ring around the side with a more aggressive racing stripe that's also injected in stronger, more reliable glass filled nylon. Additionally, the side badges now feature injected Virtue logos, rather than a sticker badge.
Spire IV Toolless N-Charge
Near the end of the Spire III production, we upgraded the circuit board to allow for plug-n-play toolless installation of the N-Charge battery pack to make the transition to the Spire IV. All Spire IVs come with the electronics designed to install the Virtue N-Charge without the use of any tools.
Hinged Shell Technology - Lambo Doors
The Spire IV hinged shell design makes changing batteries or cleaning the loader easier than ever. Most importantly, we've improved durability at the same time by combining the top shell, back shell and bottom shell into a single hinge-mounted unit. Just unlock the shell with the press of a button, and the high strength glass-filled nylon hinge provides one-handed access to the entire inside of the loader.
Quick Change Speed Feed
The Spire IV lid can be replaced with the best speedfeed in paintball in seconds. Take your pick of speed feed from the Spire CrownSF II or the Bunkerkings NTR. Each design features fingers mounted on a spring, for the ultimate combination of feeding performance, paint retention, and sag-proof reliability.
The Spire IV features wireless programming directly from an Apple or Android device. Download and update the Spire IV with the latest firmware or just always have your manual with you. With the Virtue Paintball + app, you can not only control your Spire IV, but continue to control and update your Spire III, Clock III chrono, and the all new Virtue Ace iFI board.
Integrated Smart Spring Ramp
The Spire IV comes standard with a larger Smart Spring Ramp that helps feed at a variety of angles, while also interfacing with the Spire IV Reload Indicator to alert you when you’re low on paint.
Dual LED Reload Indicator with Alarm
The Smart Spring Ramp allows the loader to automatically sense when it is low on paint and notify you through a combination of Dual Heads Up LED Indicators and an adjustable audible speaker alarm.
Faster Jam Proof Feeding
The Spire IV Drive system and Proactive Logic feeds more consistently than ever while still being able to feed the worst paintballs imaginable without skipping a beat.
Toolless Tray and Electronics Disassembly
Not only can the Spire be disassembled in seconds, but now the tray and raceway itself and circuit board on the Spire IV can be disassembled for easy cleaning or service without using any tools.
Brittle Paint Performance
The Spire IV is designed to feed the most fragile paint imaginable. Flexible rubber fingers gently feed brittle paint with ease, while the interior of the loader is designed with smooth surfaces to prevent breakage from paint turbulence.
Interchangeable Spire Drive Fingers
The Spire IV flexible fingers are co-molded to a quick release ring making their removal for cleaning or maintenance easier.
Magnetically Attached Spire Drive
The Spire IV Drive is attached by a smooth magnetic surface on the top of the drive, making it easier to remove and install.
