The K2 Alchemist is a very stiff board designed to ride the most challenging lines on the steepest and most remote terrain and is also a super fast carver on piste. The board steers very directly and delivers fast lines in the powder and power carves on the slopes when you put the right amount of power and speed into it.
The longer nose of the board gives the K2 Alchemist great float in the powder.
K2 says about the Alchemist
Our flagship premium freeride model is truly the sum of its parts, and is purpose-built for aggressive freeriding on steep and varied terrain. We built the K2 Alchemist with premium materials featuring a fully cambered profile and the stiffest flex in our snowboard line.
Let’s talk tech. The soul of the Alchemist is its lightweight, renewable S1 Core, its increasing the edge pressure. Our Spectral Braid™ uses a carbon weave with tighter angles in the tip and tail and more obtuse between the inserts to precisely tune the torsional flex and give the Alchemist unmatched stability in all conditions.
Our SpaceGlass™ tip insert cuts weight from the nose while adding durability, and looks damn cool doing it. Carbon Power Forks in the tail give the board snap into and out of each turn, and adds just the right amount of stiffness for big landings and drops. Our SnoPhobic™ top sheet technology sheds snow to keep the board fast and light, and our Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Base - our fastest and most durable base material - takes an absolute beating and straight up hauls ass.
There is no doubt, this board is the real deal. An aggressive directional snowboard built by obsessive snowboarders for obsessive snowboarders, the Alchemist is at home in any terrain and ready to be unleashed on every chute, drop, or pow stash you can find.
