Heather Jackson is one of our favorites here at TriRig. Not only is she an American superstar with a distinctive personality and style, but she rides our Omega X brakes! We caught up with Heather out on the Queen K in her race-day setup. Her Cannondale Slice is outfitted with Knight wheels, ENVE bars, 51 Speedshop cups and extensions, TriRig Omega X brakes front and rear, and a stealthy black paint scheme. Interestingly, Jackson is one of just a few top pros still riding mechanical. She's a bit old school that way. But her custom Wattie Ink kit is anything but - look at that color! Beautiful. Heather took third place last year, and we'd love to see her climb up a little higher. Good luck Heather!



  • Jackson riding with Joe Gambles, and her husband and Wattie Ink founder Sean Watkins. Pretty rad combination of colors and designs in this photo. All three are in Wattie Ink kit.
  • Hang ten!
  • Happy riders out on course.
