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 us 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.

Rider Type:  Freeride

Shape: Directional

Flex: 9/10 - Super Responsive

Rocker: Rocker Nose /  Camber Under Feet  

Ability Level:  Advanced / Expert


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.


S1 Core - Smooth flexing and durable enough to pack a five-year warranty, the S1 Core is made from three renewable species of timber - Bamboo, Aspen, and Paulownia. Aspen and Bamboo work together to highlight the snap and response of this wood and a Bamboo-dominant underfoot section at 30? to increase strength, 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 to help to reduce swing weight.


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 a 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 number 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 from Crown, the Wax-Infused Sintered 4001 Base hold wax longer than other sintered bases for a smoother glide, longer.


SnoPhobic Topsheet ? Helps eliminate snow buildup when it gets deep.
