The Virtue Spire III Paintball Hopper is an all-encompassing upgrade to the game-winning design of the original Spire 200 and 260. Now available in 280 or 220+ round capacities. The Spire III is built on technology that made the original Spire the best high-end loader in paintball, while simultaneously improving its performance, reliability, and ease-of-use.
The Spire III is built on the proven original Spire design that has won more professional tournaments since its inception than any other loader in the sport of paintball. The Spire III continues with design philosophy that's Built to Win in delivering a loader that's Smaller, Lighter, Holds More Paint, Easier, Faster, and Still Never Jams.
Built To Win
Faster, More Consistent Feeding
Still Never Jams
Soft on Brittle Paint
More Reliable and Durable
Easier Toolless Disassembly
Reload Indicator with H.U. LEDs + Alarm
Approx. 2.5mm Smaller than Spire 200
Hinged Shell Technology™
New Hinged Shell Technology makes the Spire III the easiest loader to disassemble and put back together again. From changing batteries to changing the speed feed or cleaning the loader can be done in seconds. 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.
Higher 220+rnd Capacity
By reducing the height of the internal Spire Drive and changing the geometry of the bottom of the loader, the capacity has increased to 220+ rounds without adding to the height or weight of the Spire III.
Quick Change Speed Feed
The Spire III lid can be replaced with the best speedfeed in paintball in seconds. The newly updated Spire CrownSF II features toolless quick change removable fingers. Each finger is mounted on a spring, for the ultimate combination of feeding performance, paint retention, and sag-proof reliability.
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.
The Spire III saves power thanks to the smaller, lighter Spire Drive and upgraded paint detection capability. The LEDs are automatically dimmed to conserve 50% more power after a few seconds of inactivity. Additionally, an ultra-low battery can be enabled to save even more power. This is especially useful if your batteries are low and you can't find replacements.
The Spire III features wireless programming directly from an Apple or Android device. Download and update the Spire III with the latest firmware or just always have your manual with you. Future versions of the software will allow you to make adjustments securely over your smartphone or tablet.
The Spire III has a faster, more intelligent processor that monitors the motor to prevent annoying pulsing of the stack, allowing the Spire III to stop and start feeding more reliably.
Integrated Smart Spring Ramp
The Spire III comes standard with a larger Smart Spring Ramp that helps feed at a variety of angles, while also interfacing with the Spire III Reload Indicator to alert you when you’re low on paint.
Shock-mounted G-force Sensor
The Spire III G-force sensor has been upgraded and mounted on an independent silicone housing which reduces unwanted spinning and allows the Spire III to function more consistently and reliably.
Faster Jam Proof Feeding
The Spire III Drive system is 35% smaller and integrated into a newly designed captured raceway that allows the Spire III to feed faster and more consistent than ever while still being able to feed the worst paintballs imaginable without skipping a beat.
Magnetically Attached Spire Drive
The Spire III Drive is attached by a smooth magnetic surface on the top of the drive, making it easier to remove and install
Toolless Tray Disassembly
Not only can the Spire be disassembled in seconds, but now the tray and raceway itself on the Spire III can be disassembled for easy cleaning or service without using any tools.
Toolless Electronics Package
Not only can the software on the Spire III be flashed wirelessly from your phone or tablet, but the entire electronics package can be easily removed without tools.
Brittle Paint Performance
The Spire III is designed to feed the most fragile paint imaginable. Newly redesigned 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 III flexible fingers are co-molded to a quick release ring making their removal for cleaning or maintenance easier.
