The X4's are the newest cams from Black Diamond and trad climbers will rejoice after using these modern marvels. The X4's cams are a perfect storm of extensive product development, thousands of hours worth of research and a meticulous and uncompromising design philosophy with climbers in mind. This technological tempest coalesces to create the cam of the future that will quickly work its way into your go-to gear pile. The miracle pieces feature best in class expansion range, which means less weight and bulk for the same level of protection, effectively protecting with six cams what other companies do with eight. Stacked Axle Technology? Embedded cam springs? Flexible aluminum protection beads? Check, check, check. In climber speak this translates to: the largest expansion range, ultra narrow head width for cramped placements, and a supremely flexible yet ruggedly durable stem for all sorts of horizontal placements. Climbers already familiar with Black Diamond cams will appreciate the X4's ergonomic thumb loop and trigger wire which makes grabbing gear in a hurry no problem. If you don't already own X4's it's time to jump on the bandwagon, drink the koolaid and join the party.

    Becoming the standard small cam

    The reputation of the Camalot family is extending into the X4s as they become a standard small cam. I think they're good, and they really shine in the middle sizes (.4 and .5). In the largest size (green .75) I think they're too floppy. In the smallest sizes I prefer the sticky metal of Aliens or Totem Basics.

    Perfect for smaller sizes

    The X4 is the perfect quad cam in the smaller sized. The single wire stem is flexible enough for placement in vertical or horizontal cracks and rigid enough to place with one hand. I have not used them larger than a 0.4, and I don't think they would be a good idea past 0.75 or so, but in these smaller sizes they are great. The BD double axle in the 0.5 to 0.75 give them excellent range as well, matching the C4.

    We won't do anything without asking your permission first. These are your images, we just hope they can help future outdoor enthusiasts find the gear they need.
