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 22 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by The X4 is a good cam. I like this cam a lot. They place well and inspire confidence while leading. I have used this style of cam for years and the X4 falls right in the middle for me. It has a better trigger pull than the master cams but does not clean as nicely as the alien cams(cch).

Rated 4 out of 5 by camalots X4 Great product! They go in bomber and come out with ease! October 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent, a must addition to the rack I purchased the 0.4 earlier in the summer and used it for the first time in the Black Canyon and was a great addition to the rack, especially with some of the creative pro there. I then bought the rest of the sizes and looking forward to using them in Indian Creek this fall, to test them on the straightforward pro. So far, very impressed by ease of placement, versatility, my favorite out of other flex stem SLC devices. October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Cam Yet I immediately loved the X4's when I added 3 of them to my rack as replacements for older style Camalots. Being used to the range made placing these a breeze! I love the stem's rigidity for placements, and removals, with it's ability to also bend appropriately if needed. I will continue to fill in my rack with these confidence inspiring pieces, for sure! September 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by X4 Use Cases I've found two uses for the new X4's this summer, where they are preferable to standard camalots: First, since the X4 profile is about 2/3 the width of Camalots, the X4 can engage all four cams better in shallow cracks than the equivalent camelot. Second, I found that the X4s work better protecting trad limestone in the Dolomites than Camalots, because of the lower profile. September 8, 2014
