Features
Rocking sick artwork from Dave Banks out of Portland and crafted under the watchful eye of French-Canadian, Louif Paradis, The Villain snowboard is loaded with tech to achieve its master plan of mountain domination. The Rock Out Camber profile features a flat zone between your bindings for increased stability, camber under your feet for dastardly-enhanced response, and rocker on the tips for sinister press-ability, playfulness and catch-free riding. Wielding a Sintered EG base, The Villain has supreme wax absorption and an Electra finish for superior glide over that sticky spring snow.

The team at Salomon decided that nothing but the best would do and chose the unparalleled quality, snappiness and lightness of Aspen Select as the wood of choice for this board. Oh, and the wood is FSC certified, hell yeah eco-friendliness! Slingshot Suspension and a Popster Booster core add more height to your ollies and extra power to your turns, making this board an all around park-fiend and mountain-monster.

    If you're looking for a solid park board, this may be the one for you. Plenty of pop, soft enough to jib anything, and it doesn't wash out. I'm a big fan of the rock out camber in combination with the equalizer rad sidecut. Not my favorite pow board, but it handles everything else with ease.

    This is a phenomenal park board, the camber style (twin rocker camber flat) give the board so much pop with very stable edge control. I work at the University of New Mexico ski shop and I've tested and handled so many board and the 2015 villain is on my list of favorites. The board has flex that is just right. I do not recommended for mountain/heavy powder riding. ( I went to Taos when it had 23in of fresh powder, it was fun to ride like a blade but its way too light to get major speed in deep powder unless tip was up always)

    I got sick of renting, so this is my first purchase. Couldn't be happier! Put some Burton Cartels on and I was good to go.

    So I have last years Villain,which is the same board with a different graphic(I've talked to the reps). Salomon calls this board a Backyard board. Basically saying its for creative street riding. From the first run I took on this board, I completely disagreed with all of that. This board excels everywhere on the mountain. It floats powder so well and can handle burly cliff drops and any freestyle you can throw at it. And yes it's an amazing street board that's perfectly at home in the park. I've dropped peaks in Revelstoke BC, and spent countless hours in night time jib sessions on this thing and it's just solid. The royal rubber dampening is amazing in chundery choppy conditions. Lots of pop, fast, responsive. One heads up would be that it's not a soft park board and I've seen it described that way. Lighter weight riders might find the Villain a bit too stiff(check out the Salomonder). Personally I would give it a 5 for stiffness(scale of 1-10). Happy Shredding!
