These new cams have an expansion range of Black Diamond's Camalots with an anodized, offset lobe design for secure placements in pin scars and other non-uniform placements.
Designed to protect where no other cam can, the Camalot X4 Offset merges the unparalleled expansion range of their 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.

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

Cam Comparison Chart: Black Diamond's 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.
