K2 Alchemist Snowboard 2023
K2 Alchemist Snowboard 2023
The K2 Alchemist Snowboard is your directional big gun for full throttle freeriding. It's stiff and cambered for tons of power and edge hold, but with a setback stance and upturned nose to stay on top when it gets deep. If your idea of a good time involves cliff drops, face shots, and no speed limits, the Alchemist is a solid candidate for the only board you'll ever need.
Directional Camber Profile – The most responsive camber profile in the 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 (1 Playful - 10 Precise)
S1 Core – The smooth-flexing cousin to the A1 core, K2's new S1 core in designed to be damp underfoot and stronger than hell. Constructed from bamboo, aspen, and paulownia, the S1 core lets each wood do what it's best for. Tip-to-tail bamboo stringers add snap, durability, and dampening underfoot, and are balanced out by lightweight paulownia in the midbody, tip, and tail to help reduce swing weight. Underfoot, aspen and bamboo are placed at 30° angles to increase strength, supercharge edge-to-edge response, and increase pressure distribution along the edge.
Triaxial Glass – A glass laminate with diagonal layers that adds torsional stiffness for increased stability and improved edge hold. The fibers three layers of fibers are woven at 45° , 45° , and 0° . This makes for a more responsive ride longitudinally and torsionally.
Spectral Braid™ – K2’s Patented Spectral Braid is a first-of-its-kind variable angle reinforcement that allows for precision tuned torsion and flex by altering the fiber orientation along the length of the snowboards. This makes snowboards feel lively, energetic, and remarkably composed.
SpaceGlass™ Tip – 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™ – Pre-cambered 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. Adds snap to ollies, increases edge pressure, and gives energy in and out of turns.
recess3d – By reducing the amount of materials in low-stress zones, K2 is able to reduce the swing weight of your snowboard, while also reducing chatter in the tip and tail - all without sacrificing strength.
Wax-Infused Sintered 4001 Base – Built using the hardest and fasted sintered base material on the market, the Wax-Infused Sintered 4001 Base holds wax longer than other sintered bases for smoother, longer lasting glide.
SnoPhobic Topsheet – Helps eliminate snow buildup when it gets deep.
