Camber puts pop into skis/snowboards and gives skiers/boarders good edge control while carving turns
The flex pattern is balanced, leaving the board to respond in the same manner forward as backward.
The 2019 Salomon Villain is snowboardings dark prince, the Transworld Good Wood award winning park board that has proved itself as one of the worlds best freestyle snowboards year after year. The chosen board of Salomon Pro and Rider of the Year Louif Paradis, The Villain is a creative park board that can handle street spots and groomers equally well, with the perfect flex to lock into rails and presses and the pop and stability for carving up groomers or hitting the jump line. Insane pop, lightweight performance, and unbeatable freestyle fun are just a few of the features.
Board Type: All Mountain Freestyle / Park
Camber Type: Rock Out Camber
Traditional Camber throughout the board with a big flat spot between the bindings for added stability, response, and edge hold without feeling aggressive, plus rocker outside the feet to maximise pressability.
Flex: 5/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
A mid flex that offers all mountain versatility. Playful when you want it, and stable when you need it.
Shape: True Twin
True Twin boards are constructed exactly the same from tip to tail for identical performance in both switch and regular.
Quadralizer Sidecut - The Quadralizer sidecut takes Salomons signature straight line Equalizer sidecut and makes it quadratic, which enhances edge grip, agility, and allows you to perform both big arcing carves and tight aggressive turns.
Core: Aspen Select
A full Aspen wood core with every piece being hand selected for unrivalled quality.
High speed and good wax retention, so you can go faster for longer.
(PLEASE NOTE BASE COLOUR DIFFERS DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE BOARD)
Popster Booster - A specially shaped core profile gives this board skate-influenced snap, and added carbon stringers spread underfoot energy more effectively to the tip and tail for maximum ollie power.
Triax/BA MD Glass - Triaxial Fibreglass that increases durability and stability, plus Medium Density fibreglass that guarantees consistent quality and light, lively performance.
Slingshot - Carbon inlays that load energy and enhance response underfoot.
Freestyle Edge Bevel - Pre-tuned edges for freestyle riding, so you can hit rails straight away without worrying about catching edges.
