It’s that point of yr the place we check out the upcoming 2023 snowboard gear.
That is extra like a giant image overview of every part. If you would like finer particulars of the modifications for every model that we cowl, see the hyperlinks beneath to every model’s overview, which matches into way more element.
As we launch extra model overviews, I’ll add the hyperlinks to these right here too. Extra popping out each week as we method the 2022-2023 season.
The Snowboarding Product Panorama of Late
With Covid interrupting provide and usually disrupting nearly every part, that is sure to affect the business.
Final season it meant every part appeared to develop into out there late and briefly provide. This season feels very completely different. In reality most issues have come out early (at the very least for pre-sale) and this maybe one thing that manufacturers began to work on once they knew that 2022 provide could be late. They obtained onto 2023 stuff early in order that they might attempt to make up for misplaced time – and the truth that much less previous season gear could be round this time of yr, due to that lowered provide. Simply spitballing actually, however that’s my idea, and I’m sticking to it 😉
Some Snowboard Product Developments
I’ve observed developments within the business that for probably the most half manufacturers have both caught to across the similar quantity of merchandise on supply on common. Although there are some which have lowered their line ups and a few which have expanded.
However there are nonetheless a good quantity of recent objects which have are available – past simply rehashing or renaming older fashions – regardless of all of that. Possibly to not the identical extent as previously, however there are nonetheless variety of genuinely new objects out there and a few vital tweaks to present fashions as effectively.
One different pattern that has been apparent for 22/23 is that costs have gone up. They sometimes go up (on common) yearly anyway, so this in itself is nothing extraordinary. However costs on common have gone up extra for this years boards than they’ve in every other single season since I’ve been monitoring costs (since 2014). That is little question in response to inflation and lowered gross sales for 21/22 product.
As was the case for 21/22, splitboards are on the rise once more – although not fairly to the identical extent as they did final season.. There are a variety of splitboards exiting to make approach for the brand new ones, however extra are coming than are going nonetheless.
Let’s take a fast have a look at a few of what’s retiring and what’s recent for 2023.
