Freeride Snowboards

K2 Alchemist
$699.95
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. New for 2022-2023, we've 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 we've ever made. The Alchemist stands alone as the most premium offering in freeride snowboarding today. Feature 1: NEW! 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. Feature 2: Spectral Braid™ - An integrated carbon weave that runs the entire length of the board, intersecting at 90º angles in the tip and tail for adding torsional rigidity and responsiveness and a more relaxed angle between the inserts for handling and maneuverability. Feature 3: SpaceGlass™ Tip - A pre-cured fiberglass insert placed in the board's tip to reduce swing weight and add durability and maneuverability. Feature 4: NEW! Recess3D - By reducing the number of materials in low-stress zones, we're able to minimize the swing weight of your snowboard while also reducing chatter in the tip and tail - all without sacrificing strength. Feature 5: Carbon Power Fork™ - A pre-cambered carbon inlay in the tail of your snowboard gives the board energy in and out of turns and adds extra pop for takeoffs and landings. Feature 6: Wax Infused Sintered 4001 Base - Built using the hardest and fastest Sintered base material on the market from Crown, the Wax-Infused Sintered 4001 holds wax longer than other Sintered bases for a smoother glide, longer.
K2 Excavator
$549.95
Named for its intended use, the K2 Excavator specializes in digging deep trenches on groomers and displacing powder after a storm cycle. Built around a wider perimeter with a dual-radius sidecut, the Excavator is unisex in approach and caters to advanced riders, carving groomers, and floating in powder. The wider profile of the Excavator allows riders to size down around 5cm from their usual length without sacrificing performance. This extra width and 20mm taper benefits riders with larger feet, reducing toe drag on deep carves and long traverses. Inside, we use our smooth-flexing S1 Core to keep it responsive and damp underfoot. Finally, we top it with our ICG™ 10 Biax Glass with tip-to-tail carbon stringers. This technology lets us keep the snowboard relaxed torsionally for easy turn initiation but helps to add snap over the entire length of the board. We've also added our pre-cambered Carbon Power Forks™ in the tail to allow for an energy boost into and out of turns and those spontaneous "Slow Sign" ollies. This tech is sandwiched between a wax-infused Sintered 4001 base, waxable and supremely durable P-Tex sidewalls, and a snow-shedding SnoPhobic™ top sheet. Feature 1: NEW! S1 Core - Lightweight, snappy, and durable, our ALL NEW! A1 Core is made from three renewable species of timber - Bamboo, Aspen, and Paulownia. Aspen-dominant to highlight the snap and response of this wood, we've combined it with Bamboo at 30 ° underfoot 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. Feature 2: ICG™ 10 Biax Carbon Glass - Integrating Carbon Fiber stringers that run the length of the board into our fiberglass increases the snap of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity. Feature 3: SnoPhobic Top Sheet - This top sheet material sheds unwanted snow build-up, keeping your snowboard light and nimble. Feature 4: Carbon Power Fork™ - A pre-cambered carbon inlay in the tail of your snowboard gives the board energy in and out of turns and adds extra pop for takeoffs and landings. Feature 5: Hybritech™ Sidewall Construction - A K2 exclusive. By transitioning from a P-Tex sidewall into a capped construction in the tip and tail of our snowboards, we can reduce waste while giving our snowboards better energy transfer and making them more durable than our competitors. Feature 6: Wax Infused Sintered 4001 Base - Built using Crown's hardest and fastest Sintered base material on the market, the Wax-Infused Sintered 4001 holds wax longer than other Sintered bases for a smoother glide, longer.

For some of us, each run at the resort is like listening to a jazz band play a live show - it's spontaneous, making decisions on the fly of where to carve, slash, and how fast to roll into the next side hit. The easiest way to describe it is to simply get into the groove… This directional snowboard features a directional camber line and utilizes our Volume Shift™ design to add the correct width to the board for laying trenches on groomers.
