A powerhouse, through and through. The Alchemist was truly developed hand-in-hand with K2's team, testing n’ tweaking each iteration of the design until we landed on a rugged construction that stacks up to their daily abuse, and a good looking shape that’s nimble and easy to maneuver. Built using the most premium materials, K2 packed the Alchemist with their new Bambooyah™ Pro Core with SpaceGlass™, Carbon Power Forks, Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Race base, and K2’s Spectral Braid - truly making it the pillar of the K2 Freeride Collection.
Directional Camber Baseline™ – The most responsive camber profile in K2's 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.
Flex Rating – 9/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Bambooyah® Pro Core - The 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
Triaxial Glass – A glass laminate with diagonal layers that adds torsional stiffness for increased stability and improved edge hold. The fibers three layers are woven at 45, 45 and 0 degrees. This makes for a more responsive ride longitudinally and torsionally.
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 contact points, reduce chatter, and provide unequaled durability.
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
Carbon Power Forks - 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 Race Base - Fast, light, and strong. K2's 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.
