What BMX seat should i choose?

BMX riders rarely use their seats for sitting on while riding. The main purpose of the BMX seat is to avoid the rider is getting speared by the BMX frame when landing after a big jump.

Since the overall theme on the race BMX bikes is to save weight, the seat is also minimized as much as possible.

A typical race BMX seat is a thin plastic or nylon shell, with absolutely zero comfort. The seat here is acting as a frame/wheel guard, protecting the rider's rear end from major hits.

Nevertheless there are quite a few different seats on the market. Most race BMX riders aim for the seat with the lowest weight, but some riders use their race BMX bikes for transportation. If this is the case for you, it would be a great idea to have a comfortable spare seat in your repertoire.
