To describe the Villain as just a jib board would be akin to describing a Bugatti Veyron as just a car. This ground breaking board developed under the watchful eye of Louif Paradis delivers truly class leading levels of performance for taking on and conquering the most extreme urban and park terrain.
Built around a true twin shape with blunt tip and tail the Villain delivers the ultimate in rider control and feel no matter how technical or how scary it gets.á
The Villain is all about hitting the most intense urban terrain so Salomon have stepped away from using a playful rocker profile and instead has utilised their innovative RockOut camber. This combination of rocker at the contact points, camber under the feet and flat through the middle still gives that safe hook free ride you get with a rocker but also gives a powerful and dynamic feel for bigger ollies and more solid landings.
One of the things that really make Salomon stand out from the competition is their state-of-the-art Equalizer sidecut, in the case of the Villain it's the Equalizer Rad variant. This combination of straight lines and multiple radiuses delivers the perfect balance of agility and fun ensuring that if you want to take the board out the park it's not going to feel out of its depth.
Internally Salomon use their lightweight FSC approved Aspen SLCT wood core, this is profiled with the innovative Popster profiling which combines thick and thin sections through the length of the core with inlaid carbon stringers running from the bindings to the contact points. This creates a powerful flex without making the board overly stiff through the length. New for this season are the Tri-Ax glass structural layers, this poppy glass is reinforced with
Carbon Slingshot strips under the binding and steps up the Villain's performance to a whole new level, making this without doubt one of the best performing park boards on the market.
Finally the high-quality sintered base gives great performance across a wide variety of terrain.
