    I use a Stimulite Contour XS with the center cut out to fit around the stem and the front outside corners rounded to fit into the frame (Force 3)

              I got the foam years ago from Advanced Mobility in Vancouver BC but you can get it at any mattress or upholstery shop. Mine was firm (Blue or Green) and formed to the shape of the butt when on it. Gives great relief; best bike cushion I've used to date. I cut it to the shape of the bike cover on my Freedom Ryder. On my old Pro, I used an old wheelchair cover and cut it down to the length of the seat. I've never had any problem with it and still use it on my bike after two flap surgeries with narry a red mark after riding.

              Nice thing about the foam is you can cut to any shape and thickness you want and fits into any cover you are using. For washing, just wash the cover. I use an electric knife or my bandsaw to cut and shape it.
