Camalot X4 Cam

Black Diamond’s Camalot X4 redefines thin-crack protection.

Stacked axles (sizes .1,.2, and .3) give you unparalleled expansion range while maintaining the ultra-narrow head you need for pin scar placements. Larger sizes (.4, .5, and .75) borrow from Black Diamond’s proven double-axle designs. A flexible stem limits walking and opens up placement options while distinctive aluminum beads armor the cable stem in an area where other cams can wear. Integrated cam springs keep the head small and sleek yet deliver Black Diamond’s famously smooth action. Lightweight, color-coded Dyneema slings provide instant identification.

            Comments about Black Diamond Camalot X4 Cam:

            Purchased a .1 X4 in lieu of a black alien. As a fan of aliens, I was skeptical, but the .1 performed flawlessly and was easy to set on a recent route at Tallulah Gorge. So far the product seems great, but really need to use a few more times to really see how it performs in other situations. I do like the fact that the springs are located internally in the lobes and that there are no collars on each end of the outer lobes.

                Comments about Black Diamond Camalot X4 Cam:

                The X4 excels at shallow, horizontal, narrow pin scar and thin crack placements thanks to its narrow head and flexible stem design. The first thing you'll notice about the X4s is the elegant appearance and smooth camming action. Like the C4, the spring tension feels consistent through the entire cam stroke. The X4 has the overall look and feel of a quality product. What sets the X4s apart from other single stem micro cams is the expanded placement range thanks to double and stacked axles. The larger sizes, .4, .5 & .75 are equipped with double axles just like a Camalot C4. The smaller sizes have "stacked axles" that give them an expanded range to a proportionately lesser extent. The X4 is loaded with trick details. The cams springs are embedded in the cam lobes allowing the 4 lobe head to remain narrow and lending the X4 a clean appearance. The single cable stem is armored to protect it from fraying and joins the thumb loop at a symmetrical swage. The X4 is slung with light but strong Dyneema and the colors correspond with C4s from .3 to .75 so climbers accustomed to using C4s will have no problem grabbing the correct size.
