I think at 3 and 9 you’d see a decrease. Just thinking out loud, if the rim deflects at 6 say 5 cm to be extreme, I think the rim will pull in to the hub at 3 and 9? Or perhaps initially there is and increase in tension there as the rim attempts to ovalize but at a certain point the sides come in? This needs an engineer I think and that’s not me. Still. I see the merit in a somewhat compliant rim but I think spoke breakage will be an issue. The specs for the rim say max tension is 125 kgf. Enve is 120. That is pretty high. Older Stan’s Crest xc Race rims were only 90 for comparison.
