Black Diamond's Camalot X4 has combined unparalleled expansion range with single-stem flexibility and a narrow head width, the Black Diamond Camalot X4 represents the missing link in the 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.

With the new Black Diamond Camalot X4s, six sizes cover the same range as eight sizes of comparable devices so you can climb harder without worrying about the weight of your rack slowing you down.
Combining single-stem flexibility for horizontal crack placements with a narrow head width that fits in tight places, the Black Diamond Camalot X4 cam is the missing link on your trad rack. X4 features 4 cam lobes for excellent expansion range and holding power, yet it maintains a narrow width so it can fit where other cams won't, such as in old piton scars. Narrow head width is created by embedding the cam springs within the cam lobes. Stacked axle design of the smallest three sizes gives the cams more expansion range per size than any other small four-cam unit available. Largest three sizes use the tried-and-true Black Diamond double axle design that's found in the original Camalot. Six sizes of the X4 cover the same expansion range as eight sizes of comparable cam units, meaning you can carry fewer cams yet protect the same size cracks. Aluminum beads protect the woven cable from abrasion without compromising the flexibility of the stem, allowing the cam to hold strong in awkward horizontal placements. Trigger bar is hot forged to fit comfortably in your hand and make cam placement quick and easy. Lightweight, durable Dyneema slings help you identify the cam you want when you're grabbing one; Dyneema slings visually set the cams apart from others on your rack. Color-coded Oz and Neutrino carabiner Rackpacks are sold separately, offering a great way to rack the Black Diamond Camalot X4 cams for easy identification.
