Wider tires at lower pressures will certainly act as suspension and reduce the severity of the impact on wheels etc. I use 35mm gravel king slicks at 40psi for commuting and it's great. Super comfy...

I've reached out to Rene Herse for their help.

While I wouldn't normally quibble about a few mm, the reason I went with a 650 was to get 48mm over the 42mm max of the 700cc width.
