Why we chose the Burton Kilroy 3D Snowboard: It’s gone under the knife and is now the most versatile and innovative in the infamous Kilroy Collection.
Since their release, the Burton Kilroy collection has gone through more line-up changes than Black Sabbath. Each year the bods at Burton sit down to tweak and poke at the formula, with the nips and tucks producing a pioneering group of snowboards, and if we do say so, never more so than this year. The Kilroy 3D is an innovative all-mountain freestyle deck, that takes features from its Twin sibling and morphs them into a more versatile all-terrain package.
For 2020/21 Burton have added a smidge more volume in the nose to beef up its all-mountain credentials, you still have a super playful and balanced twin flex but the blunt tail and elongated tip give it a bit more power through the rear foot and some extra float when you get a fresh dump.

They’ve also upgraded the Squeezebox configuration, adding two extra stiff zones inside the bindings to enhance the power transfer. Thinner, more flexible zones are directly underfoot, giving you more board feel and torsional flex.
3D shapes aren’t new to snowboarding, there’s a certain other ‘Big B’ who’ve been championing the movement for several years. Burton scoop up the Kilroy 3D in the nose and tail, creating a three-step shape horizontally across the board. This raising of the edges creates a super forgiving profile, a hookfree ride and an all-round playful feel. Where you’ll really find this spoon-like shaping to come into its own is when you’re working on your presses and butters. The Kilroy 3D transitions into flat zones outside the bindings so you can really lock into the movement as you’re throwing your weight over the nose or tail.
