Don't expect to be able to run 18psi and have a stable ride though. The tires still move around a lot at low pressures, they just don't fold/burp as easy.

My upsize from 19 to 27 internal on 29er XC race bike feels a lot more stable pressing into berms etc. Definitely less squirm.

The wider taller rim (both sizes are carbon) might make a stiffer wheel but I think most of the difference is the wider seating. Each run the same lightweight tires but 1 or 2 psi less in the wider rim.
