It's not that regular tires cannot ride technical or stupid lines, it more
that the plus tires offers a level of security that doesn't exist with a
smaller volume tire. You cannot deny that the increased volume run at lower
PSI offers more traction via an increased contact patch and lower deformation
point of the tire casing over a regular 2.3 or 2.5 tire. The effects are
evident when going from a 2.3 to 2.5 tire as well but the jump here isn't as
big as going to 2.8 or 3.0.
When riding big rubber, I often find myself laughing at the ease that I can
climb or descend rough or even unrideable terrain without any wheel spin or
skidding up and and down trails. It's certainly more sure-footed than a
regular wheel setup.
Everyone, from beginner to expert, can benefit from trying bigger rubber.
