K2 Snowboarding Presents:
It takes a lot of people playing their part juust right to put together a snowboard film. From the brains that design the boards, the hands that build them, the riders that test them, and the filmmakers that document the riding. It takes a BIG BAND to play the song, and we're happy to have recorded that hit single.

OUR FLAGSHIP MODEL, PACKED WITH PREMIUM TECH.
The all-new K2 Alchemist is the result of team rider demands, endless testing in the world’s most treacherous terrain, and an obsessive desire to design the most premium freeride board on the market.
The Alchemist is packed full of our top-of-the-line Bambooyah™ Pro Core, wrapped in patent-pending Spectral Braid™, and so much more...
OUR RIDERS SPOKE. WE LISTENED.
The Manifest Team references a shape, construction, and camber profile that our Team trusts daily, and we’ve upgraded it based on their demands. We’ve added our Bambooyah™ Pro Core and a Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Base to make this thing a daily driver for riders like Pat Moore.
A PERFECT BLEND OF TAPER AND SIDECUT. THE TURN'S BEST FRIEND.
Like any impromptu jam session, the mountain is filled with unexpected twists, turns, and rhythms. The Instrument is a mid-flexing Directional ride that we describe as the turn’s best friend.
This new model features a traditional camber line and utilizes our Volume Shift™ design to add just the right amount of width to the board for carving trenches on groomers without reducing responsiveness.
DESIGNED TO BE RIDDEN EVERYWHERE, EVERYDAY.
It goes without saying, but the Party Platter was shaped with fun on the brain. Hannah Eddy’s ride of choice excels on groomed runs by reducing toe and heel drag and really shines in deep and variable snow due to the increased board-to-snow surface area.
SMOOTH, CONFIDENT, AND CLASSICALLY SHAPED TO FIND THE SECRET STASH AT ANY RESORT.
The Cold Shoulder is a high-performance all-mountain cruiser with a friendly flex, a little grit, and a LOT of attitude. Packed full of features to ensure that this board was built to handle anything you put in front of it.
"BIG BAND": Extended Play – Newfoundland
The winter of 2020 was unlike any other. Our team set out to Eastern Canada to go explore the landscape of Newfoundland, to be surprised by a winter weather vortex that trapped them in the beautiful city of St. John's for weeks on end.
"BIG BAND": Extended Play – Colorado and Minnesota
When Mark Wilson got the call to film for an X-Games Real Snow part in 2019, he was hungry to start early. Early season snowfall in the US States of Colorado and Minnesota had the crew on the road early, dusting off those summer cobwebs. Our Extended Play feature from this trip chronicles all of the pieces from this trip and shows Mark Wilson and Jonas Harris warming it up for the 19-20 winter.
“BIG BAND”: Extended Play – Japan
There’s few other places in the world that are revered for the terrain and snowfall like the northern island of Japan. The Hokkaido region of Japan is home to deep snow, amazing food, and incredible human beings - like K2 Snowboarding team riders Daisuke Watanabe and Yo Amagai.
