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
