Seat too hard and dangerous for dh?

I got a very good looking and light sdg fly seat.

Problem is that most of the times my thighs get easily bruised with that seat because it's very very thin and hard. I'm not talking about crashing, but after regular DH riding where you sometimes touch the saddle with the knee or inner thigh.

Is there a common bmx like saddle people use for DH? Something that is softer and probably looks like the following?

I have the SDG saddle to and I don't have that issue. Maybe try changing your seat hight so it doesn't hit your knees?

Thanks for the info. Will try, although I don't want to cram it all the way down since it'd mess with my handling.

Try the DMR void.
