Burton 3D Kilroy Camber 2021 Review by The Good Ride
Swipe Right: Unique shape for the flex. Super Buttery, forgiving and playful
Swipe Left: Edge hold isn’t great in harder snow. Not for everyone.
The Burton 3D Kilroy Camber has a soft park oriented flex with lifted areas of the nose/tail combined with a shorter directional all mountain shape. It makes for a unique buttery, poppy playful little directional ride. It looks a lot like the 2019 Burton Kilroy Custom but acts completely different

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level
So we have a lot going on with the Burton 3D Kilroy Camber when it comes to the shape and camber profile. First off you have purepop camber which is a good bit of camber between the feet transitioning to flat near the bindings with a little bit of early rise before the nose. Then the sides are start to lift near the end of the effective edge and transition into a pretty aggressive lift at the end of the nose and tail. The combo of Purepop Camber with 3D tech works really well together.
What this unique camber profile does is give it a stable feel underfoot that tracks way easier one footing/flat basing compared to Burton’s Fling V without being catchy like the many other purepop camber boards we tried. Like Jones’ lifted tech, It doesn’t come with a learning curve compared to Bataleon’s TBT. Bataleon’s TBT is really fun but it takes some time to get used to with so much of the effective edge lifted off the snow. It was easy for us on the first turn.
The Burton 3D Kilroy Camber butters like a champ and pops easy too. We could butter, turn, ollie, turn and just play around all day. It was pretty fun.
This is a buttery, playful super fun park ride but it isn’t a bomber by any means.
As long as you aren’t hammering over chunder at high speeds the Burton 3D Kilroy Camber does a great job at keeping messy mid to late day snow from getting through the board and up into your joints. Well, as long as you pair it with a good set of shock absorbent bindings/boots all three will do their job.
If you are someone who hates disrupted sidecuts then you will like the Burton 3D Kilroy Camber. If you like a little extra grip you get from some disruptions in the sidecut like we do you will probably want more when it gets hard.
For Jimbo and his 11’s the Burton 3D Kilroy Camber turned medium/fast. However, Peter and I found it closer to the medium side.
The Burton 3D Kilroy Camber is not a really strong carver but it isn’t bad for its flex. We had fun making some semi-aggressive turns and it is not bad for a circle carve at the end of a run.
There was no powder but it seems it wouldn’t be terrible for what it is. You can get some setback on sidecut and a little more on board. Then if adding the 3D tech it will be pretty good compared to most park twins of the same size.
So having a fun buttery park ride with a more directional all mountain shape makes for a unique ride. Then, coming in every 5cm per size ads to its difficulty in matching up the right rider for this. So this is not for everyone but some are going to get off on this. The Kilroy line this year really matches up well as a quiver. You have the really tapered directional Kilroy Pow Camber, The more medium flexing mountain freestyle Kilroy Twin and then the softer playful Kilroy 3D Camber. It would handle most of your riding needs in all but hard snow.

What a freaking blast
I was a bit unsure about this board but then I read the review from the Good Ride, and maaaaan what a blast of a board.
This board is is suitable not only for riders that want to learn the basics of freestyle riding but I also used this board to teach a newbie and it worked very well.
Currently, I'm clearly improving my freestyle abilities, jibbing is easy on this board and basic jumps, 180s and 360s are made super easy with this little magic stick.
I was thinking about paring this board with a Freestyle bindings but I chose the Mission bindings and it was the best choice I could have done.
I support all what was reviewed by the Good Ride and I would buy this board again.
