K2's flagship model, packed with their best tech and trusted by their elite riders Sage Kotsenburg, Pat Moore, and Jody Wachniak. It's a directional camber powerhouse of a snowboard, with SpaceGlass™ tip inserts to shave weight, Carbon Power Forks in the tail for extra snap and support, plus a Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Base - K2's fastest and most durable.
- Best Use: Powder/All Mountain Riding
- Directional Camber: Camber between the feet and an ever so slight rocker in the tip gives you all of the power and energy of a cambered snowboard, but with a little extra float on the deepest pow days.
- Flex: 9/10 - This puppy is stiff, powerful, and ready to charge.
- Shape: Tapered directional - A slightly wider nose keeps your tip up in the pow and allows for easier landings.
- Core: Bambooyah™ Pro Core - giving unmatched durability, strength, and damping + sustainable harvesting.
K2 pulled out all the stops when brewing up the K2 Alchemist Snowboard, loading it up with tech like their Bambooyah™ Pro Core, Spectral Braid™, and SpaceGlass™ Tip. The topsheet and base get special attention, too, with a SnowPhobic Topsheet keeping extra weight off your board and ultra-fast Carbon Infused Sintered 5500 Base letting you outrun all your bros in the cat track Grand Prix. This is a powerful freeride tool deserving of your attention and some serious time strapped on to your feet.
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 help to reduce swingweight and complementary tip to tail bamboo stringers help with snap, stability, and damping.
An American made Aerospace grade precure fiberglass core insert used to provide unmatched structural performance at reduced weight. SpaceGlass™ inserts increase edge hold along 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 Sintered 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.
Hydrophobic, snow shedding top material that helps prevent snow from sticking to the top of your board.
SNOWBOARD SPECTRAL BRAID TECH:
Spectral Braid is a patent pending variable angle carbon weave that allows for precision tuned torsion and flex by altering the fiber orientation along the length of the snowboard. A tighter weave near the tip and tail produce torsionally stiff flex for rapid board response, while a looser weave in between the inserts allows for a softer torsional flex for precision control and board handling.
