A all-mountain freeride menace, the Alchemist is a next level snowboard that is at home everywhere from perfectly groomed runs to even the gnarliest terrain. If you’re looking to go bigger and faster than ever before, this is the snowboard for you. 

The Alchemist combines high end materials, incredible durability, and a super versatile shape to make it an epic board to ride! 

K2 has gone above and beyond with this one. The combination of Directional Camber Profile and Bambooyah Pro Core enable high performance riders to put some serious loads into the snowboard and it’ll just keep asking for more! The most impressive feature however, is the snowboards ability to deal with all this force and still be easy to turn! K2 have achieved this by using a Spectral Braid that allows them to tune in the torsional flex at different points along the snowboard. 

In basic terms - the Alchemist will ride as hard as you can while remaining easy to turn and torsionally playful. 

To enable the mad amounts of pop K2’s team riders asked for, the Carbon Power Fork has carbon added closer to the tail of the snowboard. This enables the rider to store more energy by pressing the tail and then releasing when ready. This also makes the board feel totally alive when you load up during a turn! 

Designed with K2’s freeride team, the Alchemist uses a carbon infused race tuned base for blistering speed and Space Glass inserts to reduce swing weight, increase edge hold along the contact points and minimise chatter at speed.

Whatever section of the mountain you’re riding, the Alchemist will enable you to go faster, turn harder, and launch further than you ever thought possible. Perfect for all mountain / freeride snowboarders who are looking to level up their riding or advance to steeper, gnarlier terrain.

FEATURES

  • FLEX RATING: 9/10
  • Directional Camber Profile: The most responsive camber profile in the line features camber running from in front of the front foot to the tail of the board with slight early rise in the nose. This gives the rider the most precision and control possible in any terrain while still floating effortlessly in the deep stuff.
  • Bambooyah™ Pro Core: Our all new Bambooyah™ Pro Core takes a decade of bamboo cores and takes it up another notch. Equal parts performance, renewable, and durable, we’ve blended three different species of wood to create the most premium core in our offering. Bamboo and aspen are placed at 30 ° underfoot to supercharge the edge to edge response and increase the pressure distribution along the edge. We’ve also placed lightweight paulownia in the tip and tail to help reduce swingweight and complementary tip to tail bamboo stringers help with snap, stability, and damping.
  • Triax Glass: A glass laminate with diagonal layers that adds torsional stiffness for increased stability and improved edge hold. The three layers of fibers are woven at 45 ° , 45 ° , and 0 ° . This makes for a more responsive ride longitudinally and torsionally.
  • Spectral Braid:Spectral Braid is a first of its kind variable angle reinforcement (Patent Pending) that allows for precision tuned torsion and flex by altering the fiber orientation along the length of the snowboards. Lively, energetic, and remarkably composed; snowboards with K2’s Spectral Braid have stability and control in spades while remaining hyper-maneuverable. 
  • Designed to enhance stability and control in all snow types, TORSION CONTROL DESIGN combines a progressive torsional flex, with a balanced and even longitudinal profile. Torsionally stiffest in the tip and tail, and more relaxed between the inserts, K2 Snowboards with TCD have both powerful, precise turn initiation and smooth, consistent release in all snow types. 
  • SpaceGlass™: An American made Aerospace grade precure fiberglass core insert used to provide unmatched structural performance at reduced weight. SpaceGlass™ inserts increase edge hold along the contact points, reduce chatter, and provide unequaled durability.
  • Carbon Power Fork: Equal parts snap and energy transfer, the ultra lightweight Carbon Power Fork™ additives are dynamically flexing to optimize the performance in a snowboard. Carbon Power Fork™ additives are strategically shaped to offer greater response and energy return by increasing the width toward the tail - allowing for more material to be engaged, and more energy to be created the harder the tail is flexed. 
  • Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Base: Fast, light, and strong. Our Carbon Infused 5500 base is the cream of the crop. By adding carbon to a sintered base, we’ve increased wax retention and decreased drag for a faster, smoother ride.

Tester Comment:

“This snowboard is ridiculous. I love it! For such a high performance board it feels weirdly easy to ride. We’ve pushed it a bit today and it’s just been epic on every run. I don’t really want to give it back…”
