It is also to remove unsprung weight. This helps the tire make more traction because there is less mass to accellerate/decellerate from the wheel suspension assembly. Making the tire cna suspension follow/conform to the road better.

The practical side of this is it is of little benefit it does help some but you can only do it with the hard carbon arms as the plastic arms flex too much when the mat'l is removed.
