The Salomon The Villain Snowboard is a criminally good freestyle deck for the park purist. Built for team rider Louif Paradis, The Villain has a smooth medium flex backed up with carbon stringers to allow for the perfect blend of buttery pressability and explosive pop. The same poise that allows it to handle high speed approaches and run outs make it a fun groomer board with a playful and smooth feel. Finish it off with a speedy sintered base that's more getaway-car than snowboard, and The Villain is all set to be your new partner in crime.
