I've neither trike but have seen and spoken to several Catrike owners who are very pleased. Both trikes are tadpole design but they are very different in their steering geometry. The rear-wheel steering of the Sidewinder can make donut turns, which can be fun in themselves, but I've heard that rear wheel trail can be harrowing at high speeds (wheel flap possibly leading to instablility.) If your wife does not intend to race or speed down hills I suppose that's not an issue. I'm sure both trikes are fun to ride at low to medium speeds, though.
