David Crothers July 10, 2012 Videos

Rumor has it that we’re about to see a new addition to Black Diamond’s Camalot family… A meeting is scheduled at the Summer Outdoor Retailer so we can check out Black Diamond’s latest camming arsenal. Meet the the Camalot X4 a 4-lobed camming device that features a protective Stacked Axel Technology. More information to follow soon.

A durable, versatile 4-lobed camming unit, the Camalot X4 combines our patent-pending Stacked Axle Technology with a narrow head-width and integrated cam springs to offer an unmatched expansion range than any small cam on the market. Aluminum armor beads protect the cable stem without compromising flexibility. The Camalot X4 is the missing link in the Camalot family of Black Diamond.

    Looks like you swiped a pic from MP for your second photo and neglected to give proper attribution. The notes on that pic were from MattM@MP, in a post discussing a possibility for what BD means by “Stacked Axle”. Bad form, IMO.—rumor/107687279__2#a_107692025

    You’re right, thanks for calling us out. The other photo came from the BD marketing guys.

    Thanks. And frankly I think Matt swiped it from a BD press release… Anyway, I just wanted to clarify where the notes with the pic came from. Btw, there’s a new pic on MP now with a side view…

    Never mind, the new photo on mp is the One you linked above! :-)
