NeverGroomed notes:

The D'Riddim FT is the exact same shape as the regular D'Riddim, and built with the exact same materials. But the camber on the flat-tail (FT) version extends all the way to the rearmost tail measurement rather than to the end of the sidecut. The effect is to add stiffness and stability, and to provide a more powerful feel when exiting turns. In landings, the FT version also provides a more substantial tail to lean on, which is a big help when climbing out of the backseat. If you’re a former racer or someone who never skis switch, you’ll definitely appreciate the sturdier tail of the FT version. But if you’re a new-school kid who butters off cliffs or lands facing uphill, you’ll likely prefer the tail rocker, looser feel, and quicker pivoting and slashing that come with the regular version. Two distinct versions of the same state-of-the-art big-mountain ski, optimized for two distinct skiing styles. It’s your choice…but we promise you can’t go wrong…


From Fat-ypus Skis:

The D’Riddim FT has the same dimensions as the D'Riddim and comes in a 188 length, but instead of having rocker in both the tip and tail it has rocker in the tip and a flat tail. This design difference gives the FT a longer edge contact length and therefore a more traditional feel in the turn. As a result of the flat tail it also has a more powerful release after the turn and makes for a very stable feeling ski overall.
