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.
This profile is popular for freeride boards designed primarily for soft snow.
Superior grip, stability, and responsive performance, but also excellent float in powder.
Ride the Park like a Villian.
When Salomon team rider Louif Paradis wants to get in touch with his bad self, he reaches for the Salomon The Villain Snowboard - no moral discussion needed. The Villain simply slays the park like nothing else, with its carbon-infused poppy personality and user-friendly Rock Out Camber design. A centered stance and 3 degree base bevel between the bindings mean this board is extremely receptive to spins and butters, enough to seduce any rider to a life of Villainy.
|Binding Mount Pattern||2X4|
Freestyle specific: Identical tip/tail lengths, symmetrical core profiling, flex and a centered binding stance.

Explosive combination of Equalizer and Quadratic sidecuts allows high speed carving as well as superior edge control in tight spots.
Carbon inlays that help load and release energy. It provides reactivity under the feet.
Popster's shaped core profile thins out under foot and thickens outside your bindings before tapering again at tip and tail to maximize the natural snap and pop of wood. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.
