Black Diamond Camalot X4 Cams Video

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
