No I would rather drive a Lotus - oh I did. Now I drive a pickup because it is practical.
XO is overcomplicated crosscountry brake best left to the funny color shirt crowd. I run Elixir 1, 3 and 5 in my DH stable. Elixir 1 is best and easiest to work on. I chucked Magura, Formula because they sucked. Leaves Hayes, Hope and Shimano. Too pricey and fragile. Which brings me to the point - a simple lowly and well engineered pickup beats Ferrari and Focus in versatility, practicability and endurance. So does an Elixir 1. If Elixir 1 is good enough for me - it is probably overengineered for most the rest of the crowd. XO is a figment of imagination of marketeers - not rooted in reality.
