The new, redesigned Camalot C4. Now 10% lighter, these bad boys have eclipsed our classic, cornerstone cams, and feature a more modern design that gives climbers everything they love about the old Camalots but add new touch-points like a wider trigger for easier handling, and our innovative trigger keeper for compact racking larger sizes.
The world’s best-selling, most trusted cam just got better. The new, redesigned Camalot C4 has now upped the ante, considering it’s 10% lighter yet just as durable as before. Plus, it features a modern design that improves on the old tried-and-true Camalots. The cam’s lobes are lighter and more sculpted, optimized for strength to weight, while the slings have a visual update for easier differentiation when racking. And speaking of racking, we’re introducing a new innovative trigger keeper on sizes #4, #5, and #6, that keeps the big guys contracted for compact racking and immediately release when you’re ready to place. We’ve also widened the trigger as well for better handling.

A breakthrough for fast-and-light missions, the Camalot™ Ultralight introduces a 25% lighter version of the world's most trusted camming device.
On fast-and-light missions and smash-and-grab ascents when weight really matters, the Black Diamond Camalot Ultralight presents a 25% weight savings over the Camalot. With sculpted lobes that account for a portion of the weight savings, the Camalot Ultralight features a dyneema cord in place of a cable with all of the same strength you rely on. A double-axle design allows for the widest placement range possible for each cam device, and color coding makes for easy identification when quick pro is paramount. When light is right, the Camalot Ultralight is essential.

The evolution of the Nano continues. Following the popular Nano Wire and Nano 23, the Nano 22 is even lighter, stronger, and more functional. The Nano 22 features a special design that is 1 kN stronger in all three of the strength ratings, a deeper basket for holding the rope in its proper position, and a refined gate for smooth, easy clipping. At 22 grams, the Nano 22 is the lightest fully-functional carabiner on the market with unique attributes that set it apart from other smaller carabiners. Like an inner working space large enough to use a clove hitch with ropes of any diameter, a gate opening wide enough for easy clipping on the sharp end, a profiled nose that slips in and out of tight chain links, and 8 colors for individually racking cams. As the trend towards lighter and faster, bigger and bolder continues, the Nano continues to set the standard for carabiners in the area of lightweight functionality.
One of the lightest carabiners on the market

The Photon Wire remains one of the lightest carabiners in the world and is still significantly larger than other carabiners in its class. The new generation features an updated body design that increases strength and rigidity to handle the odd stresses that climbers put on their gear. We have also redesigned the interface between the gate and nose to help protect the wire gate from damage or accidental opening. Available in eight colors for individually racking cams — team the sling color with the coordinating biner color for the fastest way to identify the right cam size on the sharp end and reorganize the rack at belays. The Photon Wire is perfect for climbers who want a racking biner that is lightweight and low-profile but still clips with the ease of a high-end quickdraw. It is particularly well-suited for difficult trad leads or alpine mixed routes and ice climbing where a full-size carabiner is much easier to operate while wearing gloves. Still the lightest full-size carabiner in the world

Rocklock Magnetron Carabiner
Combining maximum security and ease of use like never before, the Black Diamond Magnetron Rocklock uses the power of magnets to reinvent the auto-locking carabiner. Magnetron Technology uses two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the carabiner's keylock nose to create an ultra-secure, self-clearing and redundant locking mechanism that can easily be used with either hand. BD's classic RockLock shape is ideal for belaying, making anchors or rappelling, and its keylock nose prevents snagging on slings and ropes.
Innovative gate design uses two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the nose for super secure, interference-free closure
Keylock nose prevents snagging
Easy operation with either hand
Square hinge end holds belay loop securely in place
Slightly curved spine maximizes gate opening
Type H or HMS connector. For dynamic belaying using a Munter Hitch or belay device.
Weight: 87 g (3.1 oz) Closed Gate Strength: 24 kN (5,395 lbf) Open Gate Strength: 7 kN (1,574 lbf) Minor Axis Strength: 7 kN (1,574 lbf) Gate Opening: 21 mm (0.83 in)
Oval Keylock Carabiner
The iconic, symmetrical Oval has stood the test of time, and will now remain essential to your rack due to the new Keylock snag-free design. With its large rope-bearing surface, improved ease of use, and smooth uniform shape that reduces carabiner shift, the Oval will continue to get the job done on the world’s hardest big walls.
Snag-free keylock design for easy clipping and unclipping
Uniform shape prevents shifting

Weight: 58 g (2.0 oz) Closed Gate Strength: 23 kN (5170 lbf) Open Gate Strength: 7 kN (1573 lbf) Minor Axis Strength: 9 kN (2023 lbf) Gate Opening: 18 mm (0.71 in)
Belay device with assisted braking and anti-panic handle, for all single rope diameters (8.5 to 11 mm)
GRIGRI + is an assisted braking device designed for all climbers, for both indoor and outdoor climbing. It can be used with all single ropes (optimized for 8.9 to 10.5 mm diameter ropes) and is suited for intensive use. The reduction handle offers exceptional descent control. Two usage modes to choose from, depending on need: top-rope belay or lead belay. The top-rope belay mode and the anti-panic handle make for a more comfortable belay, making the GRIGRI + particularly suitable for learning.
Belay device with assisted braking for indoors and outdoors, designed for all climbers:
Hand motions are the same as with classic belay systems: both hands on the rope. A fall is stopped by tightening the hand on the free end of the rope
Can be used with all single ropes (8.5 to 11 mm in diameter), and optimized for 8.9 to 10.5 mm diameters
Diagrams for rope installation engraved on belay device (interior and exterior)
Great durability, for intensive use, thanks to the stainless steel wear plate
Exceptional comfort during the descent, thanks to the very controlled progression of the rope feed
Particularly suitable for learning:
Anti-panic handle: if the user pulls too hard on the handle, the anti-panic function brakes and stops the descent
Choice of belay mode, top-rope or lead, thanks to the selection knob: top-rope belay mode facilitates taking up slack and makes for a more comfortable belay
Option of locking the belay mode
Weight: 200 g
Rope compatibility: single ropes between 8.5 and 11 mm in diameter
Material(s): aluminum side plates, stainless steel friction plate and wear plate, reinforced nylon handle
Certification(s): CE EN 15151, UIAA
Stopper Set Classic #5-11
Stoppers No. 5-11 racked on an OvalWire carabiner. Black Diamond Stoppers are an essential for every trad rack, designed with a transverse taper that permits sideways placements in flares and shallow seams. Anodized by size, they're quickly identifiable and rounded edges make for easy removal. Each Stopper is equipped with a durable, galvanized steel cable.
Durable aluminum heads and steel cables
Transverse taper is versatile in flares, constrictions and parallel cracks
Rounded edges for easy cleaning (smaller sizes are straight for better surface contact)
