When you hit something and the rim deflects, the lower spokes lose tension yes. What does the shape of the rim do though? It ovalizes, the spokes at 9 and 3 o'clock actually see an increase in tension, I would guess more so than the spokes at 12 o'clock. These rims sound like they're uber compliant though so maybe there's a very little increase in ovalizing?
