Designed to protect where no other cam can, the Camalot X4 Offset merges the unparalleled expansion range of our Camalots with an offset lobe design for pin scars, flares and other non-uniform placements. The X4's embedded cam springs allow for a super-narrow head width, and the flexible stem features aluminum protection beads to protect the cable without compromising flexibility. The X4 Offset also features anodized lobes and a color-coded Dyneema sling for quick identification.

  • Double axle (.75/ .5 and .5/.4) and Stacked Axle Technology (.4/.3, .3/.2 and .2/.1) provide huge expansion range
  • Narrow head width and offset lobe design fit securely in non-uniform placements
  • Aluminum armor beads protect cable stem without compromising flexibility
  • Symmetric swage and hot-forged trigger bar provide strength and ergonomic handling
  • Anodized outside lobes and lightweight, yet durable color-coded Dyneema sling for easy identification and differentiation

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.

Camalot™ X4 Offset is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cam is beautifully designed. This is my first offset cam. Through the years I have been climbing I have often encountered a crack that I couldn't protect satisfactory because it wasn't even, so I just ran it out, or used stoppers. The perfect example that comes to mind is Goodro's Wall, a classic 10c finger and hand crack in LCC, Utah. I haven't tried it there yet, but I tried it in Weed be Gone, a fantastic 11a pitch also located in BCC, and hard to protect. It worked really well when I placed a .5-.75 in an awkward crack that wouldn't take anything else. However, these cams are good in very unique conditions and I see them as an addition to my standard rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber I laughed at my friend who bought an entire rack of offsets. After having just two for a while, I find myself placing them so frequently and easily that it's not as dumb an idea as I thought. They are so easy to place anywhere in granite. I have started being more careful and saving them for times when nothing else will work, otherwise I'll place the two I have right off the deck. When placing them it is apparent how bomber they are immediately. Often different than if you placed its uniform brother (a regular flexible single stem cam) with a lobe or two all tipped out in the flared part of the crack - less bomber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A short story So, i was waiting at the bottom of Serenty Crack in The Valley, and the couple behind us were about to bail. The first real pro is ~40' of the deck, with a nasty landing. Valley 5.9. Understandable to be a little scared. SO i volunteered to build an anchor, with their gear, 50' up. I took 3 of their X4 offsets and their line, climbed up, set the anchor. On my rack was my set of much used Metolius offsets. 3 days later i went home, sold my Metolius offset to a friend and purchased the whole set of X4 offsets. I was than impressed. The construction, the design, the color coding, the hand, everything was just right. NO more need be said. If you climb pin scars and pods, this is the tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great offset cams These are the first offsets I have owned, but I have used various offsets through the years. These are an awesome addition to any racks spending a lot of time on thin granite. They go in perfectly in those tricky, flaring placements that would normally leave you fiddling with a regular cam, trying to convince yourself it might hold you. If you're already using x4's, the color system on the slings is super easy to get use to and intuitive. I find myself grabbing a couple of these for more and more climbs, quickly becoming a part of my standard rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber placements! Over the years I've owned offset Aliens and Metolius cams. Both work fine, however I am equally impressed with the BD offsets, and find their range to be equal to, if not greater than the others. I really like the thought that went into the design and production. They work very smoothly, and I feel are made to last, which I can't say about the Aliens. I climb a lot in Zion and Red Rocks which are nearby, and always include these offsets in my arsenal, particularly for climbs that have pin scars and such ex: Original Rt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from X4 offsets Most cracks are flaring in some fashion. I never leave these off my rack because they'll make a lot of placements bomber which would be marginal for a standard cam. Holes in the trigger bar help for cleaning a piece that has walked but I'd say that it's more of an issue for standard cams than offsets. I can't comment on durability or the action over time since I just started using them this season. My friend prefers them to the Master cam offsets that he has and is planning on replacing with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best small camming unit The X4 previously held that distinction IMO, however the X4 offset has nudged the X4 into 2nd place. I originally thought the offset would be a useful addition to the X4 family for problem placements. I would say the X4 is now an excellent supplement to the offsets. In the areas I frequent, the cracks are seldom exactly parallel sided, and the offsets seem to work just a bit better in general. I usually only carry the offsets now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aid Climbing Dream Did a few walls in South Western USA with and with and without, offset aliens, offset master cams, and these guys. I found that the sizing covered a larger range of flares then other brands making these more often the first brand I reach for. However, 1 size up or down from the *perfect* size simply won't hold. Other brands have less of a gap between sizes or even overlap slightly often negating the need for a double rack. These are durable! They add a little weight in the alum bead protected cable but maintain flexibility not found in metolius cams. The nylon on aliens doesn't instill confidence and the soft metal noticeably smooshes after every aid placement. I don't understand why every brand doesn't anodize their lobes and split slings into two colors. It makes racking-placement-taking inventory mid pitch-seeing what's below you way easier. These are expensive. I haven't free climbed with these.
