The Hed3 is generally acknowledged to be the all-around most aerodynamic front wheel (excluding discs) available. The point is validated by looking at the front wheels of many Tour de France teams, almost all are Hed3's that are rebadged as some other wheel (none say Hed). The teams aren't being paid a dime- and this is the wheel they choose. It is not the lightest wheel out there, nor the easiest to control in a stiff crosswind, but it is about the fastest.

Nimble is reportedly going out of business or already out of business so buying from them at the moment would probably not be the best idea. There's been drag tests on both these wheels if you can still find it. I'm pretty sure the Hed3 was always on top.
