The following is a quick overview of the 2023 K2 snowboards lineup.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2022-23 season, and any 2021-22 boards that aren't returning with a 2023 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them fitting best.
New 2023 K2 Snowboards
The new boards for 2022-23 are:
Exiting 2022 K2 Snowboards
The 2022 boards that aren't returning with a 2023 model:
All 2023 K2 Snowboards by Category
Below, I have categorized K2's 2022-23 lineup. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how K2 might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
K2 BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
K2 PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
K2 ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
K2 AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
There isn't a K2 board that strictly fits this category, IMO, though the Medium and Afterblack could both be used for this style of riding.
K2 ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
K2 AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
K2 FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
K2 POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
K2 SPLIT BOARDS
K2 YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2023 K2 snowboards.
Two new board into the lineup and 3 have been taken out.
Out with the Old
The Manifest Team is gone but the regular Manifest continues on and is apart of the newly named "Landscape Series"
Wildheart is one of two ladies board's to be removed from the lineup and doesn't get a replacement of any sorts.
Second of the two women's board's to be removed is the Outline.
In with the New
The Manifest has had a few adjustments made to it, like a new shape but internally it remains quite similar to last year's team version.
The Antidote is one of two new models in K2's fresh Landscape series. It's an aggressive all-mountain board with all of their latest technology.
The Passport is another new addition to the Landscape series. It's not as stiff as the Antidote and more onto the freeride end of the spectrum, with it's tapered directional shape.
Changes to Existing Models
The Alchemist gets a new size addition, which is a 154.
The Manifest also gets a new size - 144.
Otherwise all returning boards are pretty much identical, other than updated graphics.
