If so do you cover every body part and if not, why not?
Mountain biker here.

I wear a helmet - not even a full face helmet. I wear gloves (mostly for grip when Iím sweating) and biking shoes for clipless pedals. Otherwise, itís shorts and short sleeves in the summer. But, what I ride is technical single track. Dirt doesnít remove skin at the speeds Iím going. There are lots of trees, but no amount of Kevlar is going to prevent broken bones if I hit them at speed.

Thereís really no comparison between the two Ė other than they both happen to have two wheels.
