The 2024 AMA US Hard Enduro Series Championship (USHE) has just announced a partnership with the off-road industry’s leading mapping solutions provider onX Offroad to make the courses that much wilder.

So, what makes onX Offroad so special, anyway? Well, the company is among the first to offer hyper-detailed topographic and satellite maps, waypoint tracking, and real-time location sharing specifically to off-road enthusiasts. The company knows that adventure often leads us off the grid, so it provides users with detailed offline maps, allowing adventurers to save them on their devices before heading out into the wilderness.

Given the fact that the AMA USHE features some of the most challenging off-road courses in the US, onX Offroad’s expertise will surely come in handy, as the company will provide exclusive mapping support for the remaining stops of the 2024 USHE.

This includes the creation of custom maps for each race location, ensuring riders have the most accurate and detailed navigation tools available. onX Offroad’s interface is loved by many adventurers thanks to the level of detail it offers, particularly unique terrain features and points of interest.

That love includes RideApart's own Executive Editor Jonathon Klein, who uses both onX Offroad and the company's onX Hunt for all his backcountry adventures. "It's helped me navigate through brush, chase elk, hit new trails, single-track and more," he said, adding, "I'd literally be lost without it, as I frequently enjoy actually getting lost."
