Word is to keep an eye out for next spring or later. Supposedly a range of small 4CUs. Where'd you find the picture?

Whatever the case may be, I hope they're named Predators. The ensuing Alien vs. Predator threads would be less boring.

dont know if it is real or not
our dealer said there was going to be some exciting new products out at summer OR show.

My bet was on a newly designed 4 lobe small cam..if this is true someone owes me a beer.

I wonder what else they have up their sleeve? gri-gri type device? wall hauler/toothed pulley? putty nuts? fold-able Adirondack belay chairs with umbrella? the anticipation is killing me

Double axle. Could be a better master cam.

Looks like they're calling it the "Camalot X4".

www.outdoor-industry-award.de/od-it/elenco-espositori/premie>>>

"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."

I talked to a BD rep at TEVA mountain games about these. They are called the predators, and apparently they're badass.

Hoping they won't be $70+ when they come out.

Interesting that the blurb mentions expansion range, but it looks to be single axle. The springs are coil springs and not flat like the aliens which means that gap in the lobe for the spring looks huge, wonder how that affects strength. I'm also curious as to how those trigger wires attach to the part that slides on the stem..

They will be. You'll still buy them. I'm going to sack up and buy some FixeAliens and find out what all the excitement's about. Maybe these will be ok. Looks like a Master Cam to me....

Being the BD prides it's self on the reliability of their products, ISO 9001, and 6 Sigma cert, I doubt they are going to put something out there that isn't going to be RIGOROUSLY tested and works well.

The idea of alum "beads" is already been used for years successfully in MTB (originally) and road biking shift and cable housing.

Odd that they'd reuse a name they had for a pack just a few years back...

These would seem to overlap with the C3s. Are they making an overlapping line or will they discontinue the C3?

Speculation frenzy time.

Neat take on the internal cam spring idea. Be fun to see these and check em out when they hit stores.
