THE BENCHMARK IN HIGH-PERFORMANCE PARK SNOWBOARDING

Salomon's Villain has been at the forefront of urban freestyle progression for what seems like forever. Developed in association with Louif Paradis, it utilises some of the most advanced design and technology available, to create what is, without doubt, the most advanced park board on the market. Winner of a Transworld Good Wood Award, the Villains combination of balanced twin tip shape and freestyle inspired flex, ensure that no matter if you're hitting urban street spots or pressing park boxes, this is one board that gives you all the tools to take it to the next level. However, as the Villain is all about performance, unlike most park inspired boards, there's enough here to ensure that it still delivers great performance away from the park as well.

Rider Style
Serious freestyle riders who are looking for the ultimate in park control and response.

Shape Overview
As the Villain is all about control and feel, it utilises a fully balanced blunt profile twin-tip shape. This low swing weight design hands back control to the rider ensuring that even during the most technical tricks, you're always in control of what's going on. Now to enhance that feeling of control even further, Salomon utilises their advanced Quadralizer sidecut. This unique sidecut geometry combines Equalizer with Quadratic zones to deliver genuinely mind-blowing levels of grip and control.

Profile
To ensure that the Villain delivers that perfect balance of freestyle control with all-terrain versatility, Salomon utilises their state of the art Rock Out Camber. This complex profile combines rocker zones at the contact points with camber under the feet and a flat section between the bindings. This unique profile delivers a versatile ride ensuring that no matter what or where you ride, you know that this board is never going to feel wanting.

Construction
Internally the Villain's advanced construction is headed up by the state of the art Popster Booster Aspen Select Core. This hand selected wood core is reinforced with carbon rods running from just under the feet out to the contact points. This works in harmony with the innovative Popster core to dial in the perfect flex. Now to give the Villain its powerful yet buttery ride, Salomon creates the structural layers from a combination of their exclusive medium density bi-ax glass and stiffer tri-ax glass. This innovative construction powers up the areas where you need pop, without compromising the urban-inspired buttery flex. Now as the Villain is all about freestyle, Salomon fit it with their Slingshot sidewalls. These are explicitly designed to help absorb hard impacts and smooth out unwanted vibrations.

Base
To finish off the Villains high spec, Salomon utilises their tough and fast sintered base.
