Steal the spotlight in the park.
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. 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 decided to add Slingshot TPU carbon inlays at the sidewalls this season for enhanced response. Finally, the Sintered EG base is infused with Gallium to increace impact-resistance and the Electra finish gives it turbo-charged speed.

What can I say, this board rips. This board has it all, flat in between the bindings for stability, camber outside the binding for boosting it all the way to the moon, and rocker tip and tail for steezy 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.
