Built to protect where other cams can't, the Black Diamond Camalot X4 Offset Cam merges the vast expansion range of Camalots with an offset lobe design for pin scars and other non-uniform cracks.
Black Diamond continues to the raise the standard for excellent camming units year after year, and the Camalot X4 Offset is its newest knight in shining armor. Each side of the cam has a different sized lobe that helps you place it in oddly shaped cracks in order to give you more placement options so you stay safer while you climb. The bigger sizes have the same beloved double-axle design that BD's C4 series has, which provides a huge expansion range and allows the cam to double as a stopper when placed passively. The smaller sizes follow BD's brand new design where both axles are stacked onto one another in order to give you the same benefits as the double axle, only this design suits smaller cams better so you can place them in tiny pin scars with confidence. The Camalot X4 Offset also features springs within the lobes that keep the head sleek, narrow, and easy to place in a variety of different sized cracks. Black Diamond armored the single stem with aluminum beads that add durability and strength when you set it in awkward horizontal placements. Both the symmetric swage and the hot-forged trigger bar offer an ergonomic control when you clean your gear, and each cam is color-coded with a complementary Dyneema sling so they can stand out amongst all your other pieces on your rack.

Combining unparalleled expansion range with single-stem flexibility and a narrow head width, the Black Diamond Camalot X4 represents the missing link in our gold-standard Camalot family. Thin desert tips corner? The smallest three sizes of the X4 feature our Stacked Axle Technology, which uses a unique machined axle to give more expansion range per size than any small four-cam unit on the market. In fact, the six sizes of the Camalot X4 cover the same range as eight sizes of comparable units. Funky pin scars? The X4's embedded cam springs allow for an ultra-narrow head width that fits in those tight spots other cams won't. Awkward horizontal placements? Thanks to super-durable aluminum protection beads, the X4's cable withstands repeated abrasion without compromising flexibility. Pumped out of your mind and ten feet out from your last piece? We also added a hot-forged trigger bar and symmetric swage to improve handling and eliminate buckling.
