advantage of deep section rims for slower riders


Whenever you read reviews of deep section carbon rims (say 38mm plus) the reviews quite often mention savings of such & such watts/power at an average speed of 40Km/h (as an example).

What if the average speed is significantly lower than 40Km/h, for example 27Km/h (approx 17mph) - are there still savings to be made from using deep section rims at these speeds or not?

Anyone have any examples or links to related information?
