    How bad are you willing to be?

    With sleepy style and an ability to handle just about any urban feature you put in front of him, Louif Paradis is a straight-up street killer who murders every spot he goes to. His accomplice in slaughtering said spots is the Salomon Villain Snowboard. It delivers a poppy, yet forgiving profile and smooth-flexing, but responsive feel for wreaking havoc on the streets or in the terrain park.

    Giving Lou the pop and stability of camber, yet 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 huge ollies and rocker at the tip and tail allows for catch-free riding. A TriaxGlass wrap gives the board increased response and a precise flex for the park, and Popster Booster carbon stringers enhance 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 getting hung up, and Salomon also added Slingshot TPU carbon inlays at the sidewalls for enhanced response. Rounding it out, the Sintered EG base is infused with gallium to boost impact-resistance and its Electra finish gives it turbo-charged speed.

    • Powerful park board that perfectly blends flex and response
    • Rock Out Camber profile is loaded for ollies and catch-free feel
    • Medium flex and true twin shape let you run the park both ways
    • Wood core is strong and lively, yet very lightweight
    • TriaxGlass wrap is equal parts responsive and flexy
    • Carbon stringers enhance overall pop and response without bulk
    • Sintered base keeps you cooking downhill at high speeds
    • Item #SAL00QD

    All Around Amazing Board

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Villain is an all around great board. I've got a few boards set up to choose from and in any conditions I just can't seem to put the Villain down. It has Salomon's Rock Out Camber profile which means it has flat between the bindings, camber under your feet giving it the perfect amount of pop and rocker at the tip and tail. If you've been looking for a great park board that performs surprisingly well all over the mountain you can stop your search here.

    The Salomon Villain is my go to everyday snowboard. This board can handle everything from Ripping laps in the park to riding waist deep powder. The Rock out Camber profile on this board gives you the best of every camber, with the Flat between the bindings and camber underfoot helping minimize chatter at high speeds and being able to rip into carves at high speeds as well and not being afraid of washing out. and then you have their catch free rocker on the tip and tail which is a game changer when hitting rails in the park. If you're looking for one board to do it all this season, the Villain is for you.

    If you have ANY questions on this board or any other boards feel free to shoot me a call or send me an email!

    This villain is my hero

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This deck is such an awesome board for the park and particularly hitting rails. With that being said this is on the softer end of Solomon's line but it does not feel that way. First off the profile on the board is pretty unique. Riding in the park i love to have a flat or traditional camber board for pop, carving, and also locking into tricks. This board really sits like a traditional camber board until you step on it and the tip/tail flatten out which is considered slight rocker with some weight. I found it really preserves that camber feel so you get that lock in feel on tricks which is unique to Solomon boards. When dealing with a softer board you get a lot of feedback when riding fast into jumps or bombing groomers. They addressed this by putting rubber inserts below the feet which do a great job minimizing that chatter and keeping you stable into jumps. They also have a more angular sidecut in the EQ rad which makes this board really lock into landings spinning out of rails. It also feels like power steering for you board which makes this soft board also able to go fast without losing control into big booters or riding trails. With the Aspen core this board is ultra light weight but that does not effect the durability. A rock solid sintered base does a great job keeping core shots away. One thing to mention is that sintered bases need to be waxed more frequently but properly waxed you will be one of the fastest on the slopes. Between ski's and snowboard's Solomon has a lot of experience messing with different tech's, and finding the right materials. You can feels some real confidence getting this board regardless if you are new in the park or a veteran jibber. The villian has been the most popular Solomon board since its inception 3 years ago and is a real work of art. If you have any questions or need help with your snowboard set up for 2017 feel free to reach out!

    What can I say, this board rips. There's a reason it's one of the most popular boards you see in video parts, advertisements, and around the mountain. The profile on the Villain is flat in between the bindings for stability, camber outside the binding for insane pop and edge hold, and rocker tip and tail for presses, easy turn initiation, and surprising performance in powder when you just can't pry the Villain out of your hands. The flex is medium so it is very playful and has a lot of energy waiting to be used, while still being stable for high speed and harder terrain. If you want a board that can do it all, that gets you hyped every time you ride it, makes you confident you can jump over your friend for a rad photo without slicing his head off, and want graphics that scream style, seriously... quit looking.
