Thanks for the input, sounds like my wife has similar ride profile as you. Maybe this can be the all-rounder for her. The X-8 is great but because of the Scoop, it is pretty wild on hardpack and icy conditions.
Ya, I would think it would be. I think she'll notice a huge difference in hard/choppy stuff. I think she'll also be surprised the increase of control on steeper terrain. If you end up getting one, let us know how she likes it.
