Can't go wrong with zipp 1080 or 808 in the front either depending on crosswinds.

But: these things are heavier than shallow rimmed wheels.
If you need to do a lot of hills the difference will be made there.

The pros let their specific wheels depend on the course they will ride and other factors.
There is no simple "what is the fastest wheel" answer.
