Camalot C3 - Protection Confirmed by Black Diamond
Black Diamond offers a light, high performance set of tools for today’s trad climber. Our new Camalots have significantly lighter weights, better flexibility and versatility making them better than ever while continuing to offer the greatest opportunity for a solid placement by utilizing a larger expansion range per size.
In a tight spot? Absolutely. With up to 30% less head width than any other micro cam, C3 Camalots fit in more places more securely. The C3’s broader middle lobe overlaps and interlocks with the opposing cams, maintaining its narrow width and maximizing contact area. Three compression springs independently drive each cam for increased holding force and contact in irregular placements. Their thin profile and unique stems are laterally stiff for slotting in tight placements, but flexible over edges for a more evenly dispersed load. Easy to grab, even with gloves on, their cable loops provide ample room for clipping in short or with a draw.
