The following is a quick overview of the 2022 Rossignol snowboards lineup.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2021-22 season, and any 2020-21 boards that aren't returning with a 2022 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them fitting best.

The new boards for 2021-22 are:

All 2022 Rossignol Snowboards by Category
Below, I have categorized Rossignol's 2021-22 lineup. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Rossignol might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
ROSSIGNOL BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
ROSSIGNOL PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
ROSSIGNOL ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
ROSSIGNOL AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
ROSSIGNOL ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
ROSSIGNOL AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
No Rossignol boards fit this description exactly though you could argue the Rossignol Revenant or XV (men's) and Rossignol After Hours (women's) could be in this category.
ROSSIGNOL FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
ROSSIGNOL POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
ROSSIGNOL SPLIT BOARDS
ROSSIGNOL YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2022 Rossignol snowboards.
Out with the Old
The "Light" versions of the XV Sashimi and XV Sushi are out, in addition to the Jibsaw Elite.
Also exiting are the Templar and Frenemy, which would be a bigger deal, except that the Resurgence and Airis are pretty much like-for-like replacements, all be it with a few tweaks.
The split version of the Diva is also gone.
In with the New
The aforementioned Airis and Resurgence come in to replace the outgoing Frenemy and Templar respectively.
The After Hours gets a split version, which IMO makes more sense having an after hours split than a Diva split.
Changes to Existing Models
- XV Sushi, XV Sashimi,XV and After Hours now have a 5%/80%/15% rocker/camber/rocker mix versus 10%/60%/30% for their 2021 models.
- Circuit and Gala are now 30/30/40 rocker/camber/rocker versus 40/20/40 on the 2021 model
- Revenant and One are now 25/50/25 versus 30/40/30 on the 2021 models
- Jibsaw an Diva are now 15/70/15 versus 20/60/20 on the 2021 model
- Juggernaut is now 5/90/5 versus 20/60/20 on the 2021 model
- District, Sawblade, Trickstick, Myth, Meraki, Scan, Alias and Jibfluence are now 35/30/35 versus 40/20/40 on the 2021 model
So everything has been given a little more camber versus 2021, essentially with some models shifting more of the rocker towards the nose than the tail. As far as I can tell there are no other significant changes to the above models.
In addition to these changes, some names have been slightly changed:
- XV Sushimi LG is now just XV Sushimi (same of the split variation)
- XV Sushi LF is now just XV Sushi (same for the split variation)
- One LF is now just One
- Diva LF is now just Diva

Scouring some end-of-season deals.
Came across a Rossignol Black Ops snowboard…
Do you happen to know anything about this board? Can’t find much info on the catalog… but it does have a XV’s shape..and what look like the Lite Frame.
Thanks for your message.
Not a board that I’ve ridden or am familiar with unfortunately. And the information I can find on it is conflicting. Here it calls it a true twin shape and here it looks more like the XV shape. The first one has more info, but it’s hard to say. It’s not a board that I’ve seen in the catalogs, yet the first link there has a 2020 model and the second link a 2022 model. So it’s quite confusing. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.
Surf's up says
I own that year Black Ops board. It is the newly designed XV but in a mid-wide model and 161.
It is very easy to ride and the steeper it gets and the faster you go the more the ride feels really calm and in control, its truly an amazing board for freeride.
I have not ridden the older XV design but I am a 58yo female with regular Union Atlas on this board and it is super comfy and veru easy to turn yet great in the steeps (I live in Colorado so like East Wall at A Basin).
It was on a very steep discount at L9 last summer when I picked it up and I highly recommend this board or if you need narrower then this years XV. But I am female and have no trouble at all on this mid-wide board so don’t be afraid of it.
5’8″, mondo is 26.5, weight 200pds, very experienced in board sports for decades are my specs for reference.
I would put an intermediate on this board without fear of edge catching or the board riding them – the re-design is awesome!
Hope that all helps.
Nate, I’m looking at the Rossi Jibsaw and the Resurgence. I would say I’m an intermediate rider. I primarily ride on the resort trails, not the park. I am looking for something with serrated edges (i do most of riding in east coast) and wanted something midflex. Wanted your thoughts as to which board was better for someone like me. Thanks!
Thanks for your message.
The Resurgence is the more mellow ride – less camber, more rocker and a little softer – compared to the Jibsaw. But the Jibsaw isn’t super aggressive or anything and only a little stiffer and subtly more camber. But if you’re looking for more easy going and a little better in powder, then the Resurgence is the way to go, IMO. The Jibsaw a little better on deeper carves, at speed and a little more freestyle oriented – but you don’t have to ride it in the park. These differences are all fairly subtle though. But yeah, I would say the Jibsaw if you want a little more performance for speed/carving and if you ride switch at all, it’s better for that too – and the Rossignol if you want to err a little mellower and want a little more powder performance.
Hope this helps
Thanks! Is either of them similar to the Burton pure pop (Process) camber profile? I like that one also but an leaning towards a board with the serrated edges. Thanks again!
I wouldn’t say super similar but somewhat similar on the Jibsaw – Purepop is flat before the contact points, rather than rockered like the Jibsaw/Resurgence. The Jibsaw is more similar to Purepop than the Resurgence, IMO.
