hey what's up guys TJ here I just got back from out hood where I was able to try a new technology from Burton for the upcoming season it's a 3d based technology and I thought I'd make a quick video to share my thoughts with you guys and let you know how it's similar and how it's different to some of the other 3d bases that are already out there alright so the 3d Tech is gonna show up in the Burton kilroy 3d snowboard for the 1920 season although I have heard it's gonna move to the main line in future season so hopefully it'll start to show up on some of their camera dominant boards and basically it's an uplifted base and edge right around the contact points of the snowboard which is the widest point on the nose and tail it's where you get most of the control with your snowboard as well as on the tips on the nose and tail and it's basically aimed at making the board less catchy while still holding on to that more precise feeling that you get with the camber dominant snowboards I've had the chance to try pretty much every variation of 3d bases out there and I'd say Burton's take is sort of like a combination of arbors uprise fenders and battalions 3b t at first glance it looks very similar to battalion's triple base technology on the nose and tail where the board is flat and the center of the board and then it kind of has an abrupt lift there on the tip so it almost looks like the snowboard has a crease in it you can see that distinct line there and that runs from the tips on the nose and tail just below the contact points there which is very similar to arbors uprise fenders so that's why I say it's sort of like a combination of the two and it definitely works it's a noticeable addition to the snowboard it's something that's gonna stand out the most I'd say when you're riding flat base or doing butter tricks or maybe even hitting jumps I think those are the situations where you're gonna feel this the most so if you've got a long Traverse on a cat track you're not going to be getting that hooky feeling that you can sometimes get out of camber snowboards when you're hitting jumps it's going to minimize that chance that you're gonna catch as you're coming off the lip doing spins and we're doing butter tricks anytime you're pressing that board and spinning on the snow those are going to be the situations or this board is just gonna feel really buttery and smooth and not catchy at all whereas on other similar boards that don't have any 3d contouring it might be a little easier to catch or hook that edge doing that type of riding really though guys the biggest thing I wanted to highlight with this video is that the 3d base does extend past those contact points so it's going to be a very functional tech it's something you're going to notice in the ride of the snowboard personally I'm a fan of 3d bases so it's cool to see Burton put out this technology hopefully it's something that we'll see in more snowboards and even across more brains in the future if you've had the chance to try any type of 3d bases I'd be curious to hear your thoughts down in the comments and I'll also have this board as well as a couple other 3d base shapes linked down in the description if you want to check them out in a bit more detail thanks for watching guys I appreciate you and I will see you in a new video soon later guys

    i like the lift of the tail and nose of my bataleon, but don't like the lifted edge, it is catch free, but also hard to really dig into the edge. This burton look like the way to go.

    Bataleon, Lobster, Arbor, Rome, Jones and now Burton. This is not just a trend. Once you ride 3D it's almost impossible to go back.

    Morrow was putting out the Spoon Nose model back in the early 90's. It was a sweet board. Ahead of it's time.

    Burton 3d technologie, is just another technique to bullshit your mind and make you buy a new board

    Morrow had this tech on their Spoon Nose models back in '94.

    The 1920 season?!?! Burton apparently didn't just develop a 3d base for their new boards. Apparently, they invented time travel.

    I have an Arbor Westmark camber that has this similar tech and it really helps with the playfulness of the board. Its my first camber board but I can still do plenty of butter stuff and still get firm contact on the snow for hard charging runs. Gives you the best of both worlds

    Hey TJ or anyone has ridden a more aggressive 3D base, do you think this helps the nose to float better in powder too?

    I had a Contract Cobra (Poland manufacturer which discontinued). It was amazing board it had a crazy 3D snake tech and similar to 3BT tech, but only contact point was raised. It was great board for aggressive carving, jumps and butter.

    Very interesting. I was riding a bataleon 3bt Freeride last season and it completely changed the way I ride for the better. I can’t see myself going back to any board without a triple base. Kinda took it for granted as just another style until friends started commenting on how amazing it was to ride. If it wasn’t due to some unfortunate delamination I’d be riding it well into 19/20 so I may have to check this Burton variant out.

    Having tried the bataleon 3d base I have to say I absolutely hated it. Rather just just a hybrid camber.

    3D base has it's positives, but you can forget about any form of grip on icy snow. Washed out so many times in icy conditions that I bought other snowboards that I ride most of the season. I only use my Lobster on days I know it can grip. Does the Kilroy 3D have Frostbite tech to help out with the grip on ice?

    How does it affect the edgehold tho? My buddy has a lobster board, and he always complains about the edgehold
