Swipe Right: Low cost springy camber mountain freestyle twin. Butters really well for camber.
Swipe Left: Edges lets go easy in hard snow. Tough to ride in powder. Bad beginner or intermediate ride.

Summary

The Burton Kilroy Twin Camber isnt super grippy but its a well-constructed mountain freestyle twin for advanced to expert riders on a budget. It butters well, pops well, turns well and has a fun all around ride for $399. If you want something more playful than our favorite camber mtn freestyle board, the Stone Message, this could work well for you.

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

This true twin has a very centered feel between the feet but it is pretty much full camber. It seems to have an earlier transition than camber from the 2000’s but it is still pretty locked in for a twin in modern day standards. We would not recommend the Burton Kilroy Twin Camber for people who skid their turns. Like most camber rides, it tracks really well one footing and flat basing.

Flex/Pop/Buttering

We were all surprised at how well the Burton Kilroy Twin Camber buttered considering its medium flex between the feet. Burton has been refining flex tech for a long as time and they do really cool things. Even with a $400 board. Ollie power is easily accessible and it likes to be in the air.

Speed

There is moderate mountain speed with the Burton Kilroy Twin Camber and it can hold up good for what it is on a bigger mountain like Mammoth.

Uneven Terrain

You don’t want to power the Burton Kilroy Twin Camber over a chundery day at high speeds but it is great riding all day in messy or micro bumpy snow.

Edge Hold

Its good but not great. Maybe a touch better than some hybrid shapes with Burton but we still prefer boards with more disruption in the sidecut when the snow is hard. If you don’t like that kind of grippy feel and know how to play with the edges to make them grip more, then this is the call.

Turn Initiation

Based on the width, sidecut radius, and depth we thought the Burton Kilroy Twin Camber would be a faster turner edge to edge but for some reason it felt mediumish edge to edge when trying to make quick turns. Specs can lie and we think Burton is doing something here with the tech we don’t understand to make it track well into jumps and other features. This could be good or could be bad depending on how you like to ride.

Turning Experience/Carving

It isn’t super quick but once you get the Burton Kilroy Twin Camber’s sidecut engaged into more of a committed turn it has good turn to it.  It isn’t too much of a circle carver or too much of wide radius carver either. It’s just right in the middle and it was really fun to carve in good conditions. In this time of directional rides its great to make some good turns on a twin.

Powder

There are many many boards we would all rather be on in powder. That being said, if you know how to ride a camber twin in powder and keep it floating then this should be pretty good for a camber twin.

Conclusion

The Burton Kilroy Twin Camber is a pretty good board for the price and it does a lot of great things. If you paired this up with the Kilroy Pow Camber you would have a great two board quiver for all but hard snow days at a price just a little higher than one Custom X.
