Black DiamondG??s Camalot X4 redefines thin-crack protection. Stacked axles (sizes .1,.2, and .3) give you unparalleled expansion range while maintaining the ultra-narrow head you need for pin scar placements. Larger sizes (.4, .5, and .75) borrow from Black DiamondG??s proven double-axle designs. A flexible stem limits walking and opens up placement options while distinctive aluminum beads armor the cable stem in an area where other cams can wear. Integrated cam springs keep the head small and sleek yet deliver Black DiamondG??s famously smooth action. Lightweight, color-coded Dyneema slings provide instant identification.

Black Diamond Active Protection Camalot X4-.1 BD2622010000ALL1. 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. The X4's embedded cam springs allow for an ultra-narrow head width that fits in those tight spots other cams won't. Thanks to super-durable aluminum protection beads the X4's cable withstands repeated abrasion without compromising flexibility. We also added a hot-forged trigger bar and symmetric swage to improve handling and eliminate buckling.


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.
