The following is a quick overview of the 2022 Slash snowboards lineup.
First I will look at any new boards for the 2021-22 season, and any old 2020-21 boards that aren't returning with a 2022 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them best fitting.
New 2022 Slash Snowboards
The new boards for 2021-22 are:
Exiting 2021 Slash Snowboards
All the 2021 models are coming back with a 2022 model.
All 2022 Slash Snowboards by Category
I have categorized Slash's 2021-22 collection below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Slash might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
SLASH BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
SLASH PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
SLASH ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
There isn't a Slash board that strictly fits this category, IMO, though the Brainstorm, or even the Happy Place could be used for this style of riding for sure.
SLASH AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
There isn't a Slash board that strictly fits this category, IMO, though the ATV and Aurora could easily be used for this style of riding.
SLASH ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
SLASH AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
SLASH FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
SLASH POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
SLASH SPLIT BOARDS
SLASH YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2022 Slash snowboards.
The line went from 7 boards for 2021 up to 11 for 2022. Still a small line but not as small as the 2021 line looked. But then with all the late releases that weren't in the catalog - it might be that there have been zero changes... or actually 1, with the straight coming back... I dunno!. If you're keeping up, I'm impressed.
Out with the Old
What will actually be released in 2022 models seems to be a bit of a crap shoot, but for now, let's assume the catalog has it right!
In which case everything from 2021 seems to be returning.
In with the New
4 "new" boards total. Though 3 of them had late 2021 releases and previous history. And the other "new" board had a 2020 model. So really no actual new boards.
Changes to Existing Models
One thing that does seem to remain constant is their existing boards - no major changes there, except one thing:
- ATV: Drops the 150 but adds a 163W. Looks like just sizing subtractions and additions
That was a little painful! But the boards of theirs that I've ridden have all been sick rides, and that's the main thing!
