Quebec street machine, Louif Paradis, helped design The Villain, which is a good enough reason as any to rank it in the Grade Eh Top 10.
I’m only kidding; our testers absolutely loved this board. I’ve never seen so many test cards for a single snowboard, apparently good boards spread fast. The Villain has all of the freestyle technology Salomon has to offer from the Rock Out Camber and Popster Booster to the EQ Rad Sidecut. If you want to ride like Louif just big pick up one of these bad boys… and maybe practice all day everyday forever.
Quotes From Our Testers
“So solid in freestyle terrain. It was completely at home in the jib and jump line. The Villain tracked super straight into features, but still turned on a dime. One of the best all around park boards of the entire test, this is a guaranteed good times machine.”
“This fire cracker will put a spring in your step and some lead in your pencil.”
“The best park board hands down. This board ruled on all terrain and was a blast to ride.”
