The flex pattern is balanced, leaving the board to respond in the same manner forward as backward.
The 2019 Salomon Villain Grom is snowboardings pint sized dark prince, the park board that has proved itself as one of the worlds best freestyle snowboards year after year. The chosen board of Salomon Pro and Rider of the Year Louif Paradis, The Villain is a creative park board that can handle street spots and groomers equally well, with the perfect flex to lock into rails and presses and the pop and stability for carving up groomers or hitting the jump line. Insane pop, lightweight performance, and unbeatable freestyle fun are just a few of the features that will make you wonder why you ever rode anything else.
The Villain Grom is a shrunken down version of the adult Villain, with some more forgiving tech and a softer flex for easier progression with less consequence.
