Virtue Spire IR2


Virtue is almost universally regarded as an industry leader in paintball electronics and aftermarket upgrades. As such, many players have come to rely on the quality of Virtue products, especially their loaders. The Virtue Spire IR2 is the latest in a long line of high-performance loaders. 

The Spire IR2 comes packed with new features that players have requested like programmability and toolless maintenance. The loader is built with a low-profile design which keeps it low to the maker's body and gives the player a clear field of view for accurate shot placement. The loader’s capacity is also on-par with other popular loaders so players won’t have to adjust to carrying more or fewer paintballs.

One of the most attractive features of the IR2 is the upgraded drive system which was designed to be more reliable and agile than the previous models and includes a “jam-proof” design. Virtue achieved a jam-proof model through a combination of factors, including its shape, materials, and how it feeds paintballs. Finally, the assembly is totally toolless which allows for quick and easy cleaning and maintenance.

Players have mentioned that the Virtue Spire IR2 works well, even in the rain. The paintballs don’t jam and the IR2 comes with a speed feeder as well as a ramp which many believe are the two most important accessories.
