The Black Diamond Camalot X4 is a rock climbing cam for fitting into smaller cracks along your climb. The six sizes provide a wide range within each individual cam due to the stacked axle in the smaller of the three and double axle in the larger three. Inside the cams, the springs are embedded to create a super narrow head width. The nifty aluminum armor beads protect the cable from abrasion while remaining flexible as you move up the wall. As always, Black Diamond finished off the X4 with lightweight Dyneema slings for speedy identification of size and series.

FEATURES of the Black Diamond Camalot X4

  • Versatile cams that are ideal for trad, big wall, and alpine climbing
  • Double axle (0.75, 0.5 and 0.4) and Stacked Axle Technology (0.3, 0.2 and 0.1) provide huge expansion range
  • Designed with a narrower head-width than than the original Camalot, the X4 fits in more places than ever before
  • Aluminum armor beads protect cable stem without compromising flexibility
  • Symmetric swage and Hot-forged trigger bar eliminate buckling and provide ergonomic handling
  • Lightweight and durable Dyneema sling for easy identification and differentiation from other Camalots
  • Black Diamond's Oz, HoodWire and Neutrino Rackpacks are decent for easy racking

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mentor was right about these I bought the X4s in .2 .3 .4 and .5. I find them easier to set than the small C4s. They feel really solid in my hand and in rock. Really enjoy the flexible stem for the versatility it brings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these fit where the same size C4s won't This is a great cam. The narrow head width helps them to fit in places that an equivalent size C4 won't. A really smooth action gives the cam a nice feel

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bendy shielded stem makes these very versatile I bought a set of X4s when they first came out, and just bought a second set for use on longer finger cracks. These cams are strong! I took a pretty hard fall (a 25 footer) on a 0.3 placed in a shallow granite crack, and the little X4 held firm, but the coolest thing about them is how incredibly flexible the stems are. The shielded stems can bend over 180 degrees without appearing to lose any strength or exposing the stem beneath the shielding. Because of the shielding, I've started to place these more often than passive stoppers in sharp cracks, because I trust the shielded stem more than a thin wire on a stopper. A couple other observations: the lobes on the X4s are a hair thinner than their C3 and C4 counterparts, and they require more force to pull the trigger. This is more noticeable in the larger X4 sizes (0.4, 0.5 and 0.75), which use black cables instead of wires to connect the lobes to the trigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic The narrower head on these cams are a plus as well as the more flexible stems. I really like the smaller (red, yellow, & blue) sizes as they are much smaller than their comparitive sizes in the C3's and I prefer the X4's flexible stems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, Wide Range SLCD's The X4's are durable, period. The range coverage is remarkable. They are slightly heavier than other SLCD's, however, this will be of little concern to the average climber. the best part is that BD backs up all of their products. If you have any issues just give them a call and they will get it resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just another great BD cam I haven't taken any whippers on mine, but everything's exactly as you'd expect with a good cam. I like the flexibility of the head and the armor beads a lot in times of funky/desperate pro placement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ugh I hate these! but on the plus side they do make me feel safe. My husband actually was the purchaser of these and so he usually places them and I end up having to clean them (I use aliens on my rack). Anyway- I can never get them out!!! Ugh I have gotten so frustrated over spending probably hours total trying to get these out of horizontal and vertical cracks (although it seems to take longer with horizontals now that I am thinking about it). He is not overcamming them either- although maybe he didn't use slings...anyway I prefer the C3s and aliens over these (of which we have both). When I led with these it did make me feel safe however, knowing that there is no way this thing is coming out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BD makes the best cams on the market... The feel of the BD X4 cam is smooth and solid. It really feels solid making gear placements and the lobe action is just phenomenal. BD is definitely leading the market when it comes to cams.
