Seat foam

Ware do I find seat foam by itself. If I am able to find a carbon base, how do I find seat foam without robbing it from another saddle? The covers are easy to find.

I'm so glad you asked this question. I've been wondering myself for quite a while now.

I've searched for neoprene foam, but have no idea what density or thickness to buy for a seat. I hate getting stuck with a bunch of material I'll never use.

Thought about yoga mat, seems close, but probably too soft.

i use sleeping pads.
they are light, cheep, easy to cut, you can do a many layers you like, or do smaller layers in the middle to flat the form
and most important for me, cause i am riding a lot in wet conditions and near the water....it dont take any water, the saddle is always dry & your ass will be dry

Seat foam

Jogi, can you post a picture of what you are talking about? I like the idea of the seat not absorbing water!
