The North Star in the K2 Snowboarding snowboard offering, and the marquee of the Landscape Collection, the Alchemist is a hard-charging, directional freeride board for a skilled rider. Targeted to please the advanced to expert level snowboarder, the Alchemist is packed with functional technology. This snowboard features two unique technologies from the K2 camp; the SpaceGlass™ tip insert and the patented Spectral Braid. SpaceGlass™ is a pre-cured fiberglass insert that helps reduce weight, reduce chatter, and increase edge pressure. Spectral Braid is a technology that allows us to adjust tip-to-tail stiffness independently from the torsional stiffness. This lets K2 make a torsionally stiffer snowboard in the tip and tail to promote edge hold while keeping it more relaxed between the feet to allow for easy turn initiation.
New for 2022-2023, K2 added our Recess3D technology to the nose of the Alchemist. This technology removes material from the board, adding a visual depth to the top sheet while helping to reduce weight and chatter without sacrificing strength.
A combination of rider input, premium technology, and 35 years of building snowboards culminate in showcasing the most aggressive and precision-crafted snowboard k2 has ever made.
