_**"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?"**_ The rim doesn't ovalize. Only a small portion of the rim deflects upwards at the bottom the other 95% of the rim doesn't change shape and the tension on those spokes stays essentially unchanged.
