    Louif's partner in crime.

    With his effortless style and ability to take care of business on any urban feature you put him in front of, Louif Paradis is a smooth criminal who steals the spotlight wherever he rides. His accomplice for causing urban mayhem is the Salomon Villain Snowboard. It provides a poppy, yet forgiving profile and smooth-flexing, but responsive feel for causing trouble on the streets or in the terrain park.

    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. Salomon also added a triax fiberglass layer for enhanced response and precision.

    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. Salomon added Slingshot TPU carbon inlays at the sidewalls this season for enhanced response. Finally, the Sintered EG base is infused with gallium to increase impact-resistance, and the Electra finish gives it turbo-charged speed.

    Solomon Villain gets two thumbs up!

    Such an awesome shred stick! This board is the best overall park board that I have ridden so far. On rails this board is a slayer that has enough flex for presses of all types, and the kinked sidecut really makes you lock tricks in. Being so good on rails made me think that this board wouldn't be good off jumps but was quite the opposite. This board is super stable at high speed with rubber sidewall dampening that soak up chatter. The Aspen wood, and carbon stringers make this board really stand out and provides ample pop. Solomon has deep roots so it is also no surprise that this boards sintered base rips super fast! The camber on this board is crazy at first because it has rock out camber which makes it feel like a traditional camber board until you need it as it has camber on the tip and tail. If you looking for a board that rips in all things park, and to be honest all over the mountain look no further! If you have any questions feel free to hit me up at Jumorgan@backcountry.com and i can help set you up!

    The Villain is sweet

      The Villain has all the high tech goods to keep you shredding all season long. This is the go to urban assault board shredded by the likes of Louif Paradis and Harrison Gordon, Jesse Paul, and Tommy Gesme. From the True Twin shape, to the Royal Rubber Rails that reduce chatter and dampen those harsh landings, this board has got you covered in spades. The camber profile on this board is jibby and playful since it incorporates flat camber between the binding inserts for stability, traditional camber under the foot for added pop for boostiez ollies, and a rockered tip and tail for pressability to get into the 12 O'Clock boyz club with deep presses. The Villain is a 4 on the flex scale rating, so it's a good board from the booters to rails and everything in between. It's a winner of the 2016 Good Wood award from TransWorld Snowboard mag! I made the jump from the Salomonder to the Villain two years ago now, and I've got to say this board is BOSS!

      Awesome All Around Park Board

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      The flex on this board hits a sweet spot. It's soft enough to press but stiff enough to jump. I particularly like the camber profile. It works to give you the stability and pop of camber with a little bit of play that you would expect from a rocker board. Check out the pic!
