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.

  • Double axle (.75, .5 and .4) and Stacked Axle Technology (.3, .2 and .1) provide huge expansion range
  • Narrower head width than original Camalot fits in more places than ever
  • Aluminum armor beads protect cable stem without compromising flexibility
  • Symmetric swage and hot-forged trigger bar eliminate buckling and provide ergonomic handling
  • Lightweight yet durable Dyneema sling for easy identification and differentiation from other Camalots
  • Oz, HoodWire and Neutrino rackpacks available for easy racking

Cam Comparison Chart

Our range of Camalots is designed to provide protection across the full spectrum of crack sizes, from small incipient seams, to perfect hands, to full-on offwidths. Camalots, Camalot C3s and Camalot X4s each have their own unique advantages, and a well-rounded rack will likely contain some or all sizes of each cam. Check out the chart to see how the members of the Camalot family overlap.

X4: The Missing Link in the Camalot Family


Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Leave it to BD to make it better... The X4 design looks strikingly like the original Alien and the Metolius Master Cam, but leave it to BD to make it better. Durable design, flawless function, and familiar sizing make this my go to cam for small to medium placements. My only critique is that the X4s are heavier than standard Camalots... Hopefully the engineers will figure out a way to save a few onces in the future. October 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Some sizes are incredible.... One is average, and one is dissapointing.... I absolutely LOVE the .1, .2, .4, .5 sizes. They are an incredible addition to my rack. The .4 might just be the best cam ever made! They fit anywhere, are easy to remove, and have a very narrow profile which makes them great in Zion (where I live and climb) and other desert climbing locations. The .3 size is good, but a .3 C4 has a double axle. The double axle makes for a great cam stop (which the small X4's don't have.... A lot has been written about the lack of cam stops on the small (.3-.1) X4's. I think that in sacrificing camstops they have made a more narrow profile, thus improving the X4 in pods and wonky placements. I absolutely HATE the .75 X4. It's head is too big for its stem. This causes it to flop around. Hard to place reliably on lead. The .75 C4 is way better. I would recommend buying a .5, .4, .2, .1 X4 rack with .75 and .3 C4's to complement them. They are a little more expensive, but are worth the price to add more depth to your rack. Overall an incredible family of cams with one black sheep that should be avoided and one good cam that just isn't as good as the equivalent C4. June 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love placing these! Smooth action cam with a very flexible and durable stem. The flex and durability of the stem makes sticking them deep in cracks, or horizontally, more confidence inspiring (especially for the smallest sizes). April 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flexable, Smooth I really like the new BD Camalot X4! I think my favorite new feature is the flexibility of the stem and the smooth trigger! I have added some of the smaller sizes to my rack because of the narrower head and larger expansion range. I highly recommend these cams. April 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stable and smooth The X4 line provides a versatile addition to the small cam market. They seem durable and have a smooth action (superior to C3s in my opinion). Narrow head width allows for decent placements in pods or pin scars, and the available offsets really shine for this application. So far some of my favorite pieces in their size. April 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome So Far These have been excellent for me so far. Love the reduced profile and flexible stem. March 17, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Reduced effective range These cams are great because they have a narrower head than the Camalots. However, they have a tendency to get stuck much like Wild Country Friends. The lobes do not retract fully when the trigger has been maxed out however the lobes can be forced to retract further than the trigger can control. This results in the cam being able to walk in to placements much tighter than the trigger is able to release. As you probably know any cam can get stuck however these get stuck much easier than the C4's. This reduced trigger function also reduces the functional range of the camming device which is perhaps the greatest benefit of a double axle cam. If you compare a camalot next to an X4 you will understand what I am talking about. This all being said, I have the two smallest offset X4's and they do not share this issue so I love them! Camalots for life! January 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for tricky placements. slightly heavier . I like how these cams have less width than the c4's and fit in tighter placements. Very burly and well made. The rings before the trigger keep the stem from getting messed up. December 4, 2014
