Award winning, jibtastic, freestyle flagship.
Interested in buttering your muffin, down rail jibbin', or tranny gapping like Louif Paradis? Hop on the Salomon Villain Snowboard for instant shred cred, courtesy of Rock Out Camber, a Popster Booster profile, and EQ RAD sidecut. Rock Out Camber is a lot like a traditional camber profile, but it features a flat profile between the bindings, camber underfoot, and a rockered tip and tail. The rocker allows for enhanced presses, but the flat and cambered sections keep it stable when you're cruising around the entire mountain. The Popster Booster profile cranks up the pop and response via carbon stringers radiating from underfoot toward the tip and tail.
Taking the Good Wood designation as one of 2014's top park boards from Transworld Snowboarding, the Villain is your partner in crime in the park and beyond the ropes, too. The Villain's all-terrain ability comes in part from the EQ RAD sidecut, which blends multiple Equalizer and Radial sidecuts. Basically, it increases your edgehold when riding over sketchy surfaces. Additional noteworthy features include a sintered EG base for enhanced speed, Royal Rubber Rails for chatter reduction, and a lightweight and high-quality Aspen SLCT core.
