Eagle One Varla
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the manufacturer’s most popular two-wheeler, which is called the Eagle One. Eagle One Varla. The model has largely stayed the same however, the Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker and features a larger battery.
Take what you knew regarding Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. The Varla Eagle One is out and it’s nothing like the one it replaced. And it’s not just about the 52% bigger battery, although that could have some significance–more on that to come.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first beast scooter and it’s likely that we’ll see a lot of high-performance, flagship scooters this season. This is a reference to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the fence as an extremely light-weight scooter that borrows its specs of beast-scooters. It surpasses the weight of resident lightweight heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ along with the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 lbs. Additionally, it also features 11 inches road tires that are typical of beast scooters such as Wolf King GT and the Storm and Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well above average top speed in dollars, an impressive distance per pound and great braking for every dollar. That’s not even the best aspect. The off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Eagle One Varla.
Due to the huge tires-something that you’re always hoping to hear-the scooter offers a great ground clearance, with a total of 36 inches. They are also great for traction however they could be improved. The suspension is stiff and bouncy when riding city trails. However, the stiffness can be useful when traveling off-road. But you might not like the short deck or its uncomfortable kickplate, especially when riding off-road.

Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro’s speed does not match that of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is much more powerful. Eagle One Varla. It’s tested with an acceleration of 2.1 seconds to the 15 millimeters mark. This is what is expected of veteran heavyweight scooters such as that of the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds along with the Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s sole competition in the light heavyweight category includes that of the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration from 15 to mph.
Eagle One Pro Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means that it also has the same dead zone. You might want to find an angle to anchor your thumb to keep it in place and provide it an anchor point when engaged.
We are awestruck by this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price. The scooter has a staggering forty mph top speed, which is much higher than the what is considered to be average when compared to others within the same price range. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits a 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at the higher cost, only reaches 36 mmh.
However, it also is competing with lower models like that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which manages a top speed at 43 mph as opposed to the comparable Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class it is a scooter can be found in a league of its own and only is comparable to the original Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter is remarkable for many things including hill-climbing, which is certainly one of them. The electric scooter can climb the hills without losing power, and it isn’t slowing down with heavy riders or in low battery situations. During our 60 m hill climb at 10 percent gradient it was found that the scooter was able to keep an average speed that was around 17 mph (and over) up to around 10% charge. Eagle One Varla.
The manufacturer credits the impeccable hill-climbing ability to the strong twin motors, rated at 1000W each and a peak power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors generate 36 Nm or torque which is enough to propel the scooter upwards up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on an electric scooter which is why this Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter has a reasonable 58 km of range tested. The only scooter less than $400 of that of the Eagle One Pro that can surpass it in terms of range is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range of 41 miles. It beat out other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile distance, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles along with the Vsett 10+ with 33 miles.
Behind the range is a large capacity, 60V 24 Ah battery that has 1440 Wh of power. It’s bigger and more energy-dense with 21700 battery cells. This is a step up from the predecessor, called it was the Eagle One, whose battery was valued at 946 wh and came with only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries have intelligent battery management systems that keep the battery in good condition. The process of charging the battery to its capacity takes 8-9 hrs, but you can secure an additional charger to reduce charge time to about four to five hours.
Let’s face it, we would prefer that all scooters came with hydraulic brakes. That’s not to say that electric scooters that have cable brakes aren’t dangerous or insecure when they need to stop. Absolutely not. Actually, the cable brakes plus EABS in Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro have a proven braking power that is truly impressive and simple to set up. Eagle One Varla.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from the speed that is 15 mph. This performance is in line with the Vsett 10-plus. Again, the Varla Eagle Pro’s stopping power outdoes those of the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, as well as Nami BURN-E2.
It’s possible that you don’t like squeezing the levers that are powered by cables that are on the Varla Eagle Pro as you would on an electric scooter with hydraulic brakes, but the Pro’s disc brakes do not leave anything in the dust when it comes to performance.
The EABS will stop your brakes from locking up. They are adjustable via the P-settings displayed on the display. They can be adjusted between 0 and 2, with 0 being the weak setting and 2 is for a high setting.
The ride quality is good however it’s not the best. The only thing they don’t discuss when promoting all-terrain e-scooters is that the primary focus should be on the off-roading measures.
The tubeless pneumatic road tires are great for comfort, particularly when traveling offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for avoiding pinch flats that are caused by rocks. If, however, you’re buying the scooter to use primarily on city tracks, then you’d be better off switching to self-sealing, tubeless knobby tires. These will instantly increase your traction, retain your comfort, and reduce maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and 17 centimeter clearance from the ground obstacles on the track won’t scrape the underdeck
The suspension feels stiff. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro could benefit more from adjustable shocks, or by adjusting the spring to less spring force. The stiff suspension is efficient when handling large bumps and stops the scooter from falling off. If the track is well maintained the suspension can feel somewhat bouncy for ease of use.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. At high speeds as well as straight track, users can enjoy a great stability. At top speed the stability doesn’t match that of dual stem beasts such as the Wolf King GT but rather is more like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn equipped with a steering damper. The downside is that the damper for steering also implies that the riders have to push harder on the bar handles when making turns.
The deck is another point to be concerned about. It’s too narrow and due to this lack of deck real estate, riders are constantly forced to place the back foot on the footrest which is not ergonomically designed. The only bright side is that the Varla Eagle Pro can make up for the sloppy stance by providing an excellently laid-out and comfortable cockpit that is comfortable to use. It was designed to be comfortable and ease of use. Its controls can be also ergonomically designed to complement the clear, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the hefty feeling of the steering and the athletic riding stance, and the intense acceleration that the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride. It can also be an exercise when you’re on the road for a long time.
