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, sustainably harvested Bambooyah™ Pro Core, giving unmatched durability, strength, and damping. 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.

The freeride machine everyone is raving about, designed for the rider who wants to charge hard, really hard, and needs a powerful board to support the speed and precision you are looking for. Long camber zone, carves with the best of them. Stiff and very responsive, with loads of pop and snap in and out of turns. There is about as little chatter as you can get in a snowboard, and very, very stable at speed. The tapered shape also makes this board incredible in powder, and gives it a surfy feel. If you are looking for a board to drop a cliff or two this is it. If you are looking to race, or just point down hill, this it. If you ride the park, this is not it. If you ride big mountain, or want to pretend you are riding a big mountain...this...is...it!
One of K2's heaviest hitters, the Alchemist gives you seemingly unlimited power, with a directional shape and a directional camber profile paired with a bigger rocker at the nose and a slight rocker at the tail, accentuating your contact points but still giving you a bit extra leverage for float on those storm days. 9/10 flex, so not for the faint of heart if you prefer to have a bit more flex in your board. It's virtually guaranteed you'll have endless amounts of control at higher speeds, especially in tricky freeride terrain, and even more so if you're racing your homies down the groomers with its insanely durable and even faster Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Base.
This board is an absolute unit- directional camber base, 9/10 flex, carbon infused sintered base, with SpaceGlass and Bambooyah Pro Core. Super high performance board ideal for riding powder and the all-mountain freeride vibe. Very responsive, hard charging, and nimble board designed for advanced to expert riders.
