Snowboard Salomon The Villain

Note: The colour of the bases may be different from the picture displayed on the website, manufacturers combine colours randomly.

The Villain was carefully designed under the watchful eye of Louif Paradis. That’s one of the reasons why the board has become a legend. It represents everything about freestyle so if your next goal after winning the local contest is to be at the X-Games, you’re in the right place.   

What can the Salomon The Villain snowboard do? 

It is a freestyle board, no more, no less. A true twin-tip loaded with pop and designed for riding switch or regular as you like and stomping tail presses or wallrides everywhere. It’s a board that offers solid support at high speed thanks to a beefy construction. If it doesn’t have a favorite between rails or kickers, it does prefer big features rather than beginner lines. The Villain is a responsive ride but it keeps a playful character thanks to its rockered tips making presses a lot easier. And like a good board, this freestyle stick knows how to deliver performance on other terrains than the park. It’s versatile and it works well on or off piste, as long as you got the technique for. Carving with it is easy as pie and sending 360s in the pow even easier. Bear in mind it’s a freestyle deck though, you will ride a shorter length than a regular board and shorter means less float on the pow. If you’re looking for a backcountry gun, check out the Sickstick by Salomon. 

Who is the Salomon The Villain snowboard designed for? 

Ideally suited for advanced and expert riders who spend the day in the park. Jib or kicker, the board works everywhere and delivers great performance but it’s a technical board and will require a few runs before you full master it. Stable and poppy, it’s a real park and street toy for big children.

Baseplate - Chassis

  • Delta Light  :

    Engineered with the highest quality aluminum and fiber reinforced nylon. This ultra light weight baseplate was designed to enhance response and board feel. The weight on this baseplate was dramatically reduced by removing heavy plastic and replacing it with an EVA dampening pad. Delta-lite has an all new contact pad placed directly on the board to better dampen and take riding to a whole new level. A versatile, all-terrain performance baseplate that’s fully customizable for superior fit.

  • Natural cant  :

    Customize your riding stance maintaining the natural riding position in order to facilitate the natural inclination of the legs! It features the Rebound heel absorber low density cushioning to increase in the heel area the absorption of the vibrations and the dampening in landings. Thanks to the new Natural Cant pad the riding flavor will smell differently.

Highback

  • Light Frame  :

    Good news for the lovers of lightness! The new Light Frame keeps the same benefits of a full frame highback without the weight! It's a perfect mix of torsion and response while dramatically reducing the weight of the highback. This guarantees that it is comfortable, forgiving with no compromise of the support. And no extra weight.

Straps - Buckles

    Take the quickest, and most efficient ratchet in the market, appreciated for its ability to slide five ladder steps every crank and its ergonomic shape to fasten the ratcheting and releasing operations. Then reduce the weight by 25% using Magnesium instead of aluminum and add even more precision with the new metal button release. You have yet to try the best.

    Comfort, response, and flex in a luxuriously constructed strap.

    New internal padding for extra flex and coheasion with boot and binding interface. Featured on the Fifty binding, which is the best Drake's “value for the money”.
