From renegade rail sessions on the streets to ducking ropes for secret pow stashes, the Salomon Villain Wide Snowboard is the perfect accomplice when you're up to no good. Designed with the help of urban assassin Louif Paradis, the Villian Wide provides pop and pressability for riders with bigger boots.
To give Lou the pop and stability of camber, but with a more forgiving feel, Salomon gave the Villain its Rock Out Camber profile. A large flat section underfoot provides stability, while mild camber outside the bindings keeps your board loaded up for big ollies and rocker at the tip and tail allows for catch-free riding. Biax glass gives the board a buttery, predictable flex for locking into presses, and Popster Booster carbon stringers increase pop and response without adding weight.
The lightweight Aspen core is strong and snappy for a lively feel, and it's FSC-certified so you know it's sustainably harvested. The Freestyle edge tune lets you slide rails right out of the plastic without worrying about hanging up, and Royal Rubber pads in high-pressure zones reduce chatter and prevent blowouts. Finally, the Sintered EG base is infused with Gallium to increace impact-resistance and the Electra finish gives it turbo-charged speed.

This thing shreds like no other. It has loads of pop, lays down the carves, is surprisingly light, and even has incredible float in the deep stuff. I've taken mine from the streets to the backcountry without a problem. Seriously, if your thinking about getting this you probably should.
