Description

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. 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.

  • 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

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, Camalot X4s and Camalot Ultralights 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.

I have used the pieces on several routes and really appreciate the flexibility of the stem in horizontal placements. The narrow profile of the cams allows for secure placements in pin scars and, the added reach of the longer stem has helped out on a couple of occasions when the next placement would otherwise be just out of reach. I will definitely be adding more to my rack. </span> November 28, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-11-28" /> </div><div id='109694333' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Camalot™ X4" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Cyril</span><span itemprop="name"> Good addition to the Camalot family! </span><span itemprop="description"> Recently decided to try out some X4s instead of another brand I was using in the small size range. Stacked them alongside my new ultralight Camalots and off I went for a couple of weeks cruising around Colorado (Lumpy Ridge, Garden of the Gods, Flatirons, etc.) I took a chance and didn't take the small cams I used to use. Fortunately I never missed them since these X4s did everything I asked of them. I found the .2, .3, .4, .5 the most useful of late. They are now a part of my standard Canadian Rockies rack when I anticipate a need for small gear. Super happy with their performance so far, especially in conjunction with my regular range of Camalots since they seamlessly extend the range into smaller crack sizes. </span> November 11, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-11-11" /> </div><div id='94222319' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Camalot™ X4" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Jason</span><span itemprop="name"> Great, innovative camalot </span><span itemprop="description"> I didn't think the C4 could be improved upon, but these things are amazing! </span> July 16, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-07-16" /> </div><div id='88529608' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Camalot™ X4" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Tad</span><span itemprop="name"> When you are reluctant to place a nut or stopper </span><span itemprop="description"> These come into their own when you are on what I call a nut eater crack. You know the kind, they always have a &quot;permanent&quot; piece someone had to leave behind. Or, you have to take a nut tool and something to hit it to get your own nuts free. When you don't want your second fumbling for what seams like hours, trying to extract a jammed nut. These cams replace all that. Yes there is a weight penalty but the speed and ease of use, can out weigh that. These cams are the best of the mini cam bunch. </span> May 17, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-05-17" /> </div><div id='86579378' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Camalot™ X4" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">James</span><span itemprop="name"> Great for Narrow Placements </span><span itemprop="description"> I climb a lot at Devil's Lake in Wisconsin, and the narrow head of the X4's allow them to fit where comparable C4's don't. The micro sizes are great and have become my go-to tiny cam. I've taken a sizable whipper onto a well-place .2 and belayed while a .2 with only three lobes engaged held an even bigger fall. If you climb in an area with finicky, shallow placements, then X4's should be your standard small cams. </span> April 25, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-04-25" /> </div><div id='85783157' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Camalot™ X4" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Christopher</span><span itemprop="name"> lots of metal against the rock on tiny cams </span><span itemprop="description"> I've recently come back to trad climbing, as I'm always pretty motivated to find new stuff to climb on. After three consecutive seasons of opening new boulders at Indian Creek, I was keen to climb the same kind of moves on the cliffs. Most of the routes I'm looking for are not really easy to protect, or have tiny seams not really big enough to climb, especially for my fat sloper fingers. The .1 and .2 X4s have been really nice to have on these routes. I feel good about 'em, even runout on Wingate sandstone. </span> April 15, 2016 <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-04-15" /> <img itemprop="image" src="http://photos-eu.bazaarvoice.com/photo/2/cGhvdG86YmxhY2tkaWFtb25kZXF1aXBtZW50/5e2eafc5-4b85-52e7-af76-21809f4caae4"> </div><div id='85139762' itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review"><meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Camalot™ X4" /><span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Daniel</span><span itemprop="name"> As expected </span><span itemprop="description"> Great cam.
