Since their introduction in 1987, Black Diamond Camalots have undergone three generations of refinement, while continuously proving themselves as trusted partners on the racks of climbers worldwide. Their patented double-axle design created a range of placement and strength unequaled by any other camming device—critical advantages that are still preferred 17 years later.  BD has developed a technology in their head designs and cable stems, offering the greatest opportunity for solid placements by utilizing a larger expansion range. Significantly lighter weights than past cams, better flexibility and smooth action make the C4 Camalots the best protection available.

      Comments about Black Diamond C4 Camalots:

      I love the C4 cams. I have a set and was looking to double-up my #1, #2, and replace my #0.5. I thought the price was more than fair and the free matching carabiner was icing on the cake.

        BD cams almost find placements on their own.....and placed correctly, they are simply bombproof. A rack is not complete without a set (2 sets even better!).

        A great addition to any rack or helping to start a rack. I bought the 0.5, 0.75, 1, and 2 and found that this is a great place to begin with active protection. The BD C4 is well known and well trusted cams that makes me feel confident being a new leader.

            These cams are totally bomber and should be a staple on every rack. My only complaint is their triggers can twist around the stem of the cam - you'll need to manually adjust the alignment or just get use to the free floating, twisting action.

                This is the best cam on the market. If you are looking to add to your rack or starting a new one, there is no camming device that compares to the camalot. I have used these cams on climbs where I was absolutely terrified. Knowing that I placed a Black Diamond Camalot before the crux moves gives my mind some comfort so that I can climb without fear. These cams are as good as it gets!

                there's nothing better. I have some omega pacific link cams that work great as a way to have doubles of all the cams from #2-.3 without having to cary all 5 cams( a #2 and .75 span the whole range and will even triple up the .75 range) . however they don't place as easily or as solidly. have yet to take a fall on either of them though.

                    What can you say. Camalots are the gold standard for camming devices. The free biners were a plus.

                      Black Diamond C4s are terrific cams. In the smaller sizes there are better choices, I feel, than the smaller C4s and the C3s. Many of my friends' racks stop with the .5, but I find the .4 is still a nice piece and a perfect piece to bridge to the largest of my small cams.

                      The free color-coordinated neutrino is a nice touch, easy to grab the right cam from your rack!

                        These cams are the best I have ever climbed on. They are always smooth to place and remove, and fit better in many placements than other brands. While they may be fairly high in price, it is completely justified based on their performance.
