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. These X4's feature minor cosmetic flaws that in no way affect their performance

  • 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, 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.

X4: The Missing Link in the Camalot Family


Camalot™ X4 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cam Rocks Great cam. Light. Flexible stem is awesome. 10/10 will keep whipping on these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design built to last I have been using the X4's for a while. I like to have them as an alternative to my other BD cams the same size. They are strong, and when I am guiding and my clients have to clean them, I feel more confident that they won't damage them if for some reason they have trouble getting them out of the crack. I like the smaller sizes (I use them more often than the .75) and they are my first choice when I need to place small pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and flexible Sad to see them go to be replaced with the Z4, these cams have been my go-tos whenever I get to horizontal or shallow placements. Flexible, narrow, durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Camelot C4s I just recently replaced my BD C4s. I have been using C4s since 1990 and they have never failed me. The new units are well made and slightly lighter than the last models. Also much lighter than the first set I bought almost 30 years ago. The #4 also has a nice new lock feature to made it smaller on your rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, versatile I have a double rack of BD cams now, and my smaller cams are all the X4s. I love the X4s because of their flexible stems, which give them a lot of versatility when it comes to loading direction. In particular, these are great for horizontals. Definitely pick up a few of these and add them to your rack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, flexible and for where others don’t These are a great addition to any rack. The compact head fits where other cams don’t. They are light, and very flexible. Haven’t fallen on them, but it seems the beeds would be helpful to protect the cable. Some reviews suggested these get stuck easily, but this has not been my experience. New followers had no problem getting them out even in tighter placements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and light I've only got to use these guys a few times so far, but they are bomber. They feel like they can take a beating and have held really well in their placement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible stems are awesome I love these for the ranges they cover and the flexible stems are awesome (esp. for horizontals). They seem easier to place in fiddly areas than C4s of the same size.
