ALCHEMIST - Made in the USA
Riding the biggest lines and landing the biggest tricks requires precision, focus, and the right equipment to safely unstrap at the bottom. To meet the demands of Team riders like Pat Moore and Sage Kotsenburg, we integrated all of our premium technologies, tested countless different versions, and built the K2 Alchemist snowboard - the most capable freeride snowboard on the market.
Directional in shape, flex, and Camber Profile - our flagship snowboard is truly the sum of its parts. Nimble, agile, and extremely powerful, the Alchemist is designed for the riders looking to get the most out of their board and ride through all conditions with confidence. A tapered outline enhances float in deep snow without compromising the ability to ability to ride switch.
Inside the Alchemist, our Bambooyah™ Pro Core block increases pressure to the edge by placing bamboo and aspen at 30° underfoot - helping to supercharge the edge-to-edge response and increase pressure distribution. This allows you to keep pressure on your edge and remain in your sidecut through the chop.
In the tip - a USA made 3D printed honeycomb tip insert provides unmatched structural performance and damping while also reducing weight over a traditional wood core. In the tail, our pre-cambered Carbon Power Forks™ help to transfer energy to the contact point and also increase pop - making this board feel lively and powerful.
Atop the core, a triaxial fiberglass lay up is combined with K2’s Patented Spectral Braid™ - a variable angle reinforcement that allows us to tune the tip-to-tail flex independent from the torsional flex of the snowboard by altering the orientation of the fibers long the length of the snowboard - we use this to make the Alchemist torsionally stiffer in the tip and tail, and a bit more relaxed between the feet. This means easy turn initiation and unparalleled edge hold.
Lastly, on the outerlayers of the Alchemist, a snow-shedding SnoPhobic™ topsheet helps to reduce weight and snow build up, and a Stone Ground Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered base makes this snowboard glide faster than hell and smoother than a baby’s bottom.
Made right here in Washington State, the USA K2 Alchemist Snowboard is built for experienced snowboarders looking for a quick, fast, and hyper-precise snowboard that will confidently perform anywhere you take it.
