Electric Scooter Varla Eagle One Pro
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s best-selling two-wheeler, the Eagle One. Electric Scooter Varla Eagle One Pro. Although the model has largely stayed the same but the Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker and features a larger battery pack.
Take what you knew about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. The Varla Eagle One is here and isn’t like its predecessor. It’s not just about the 52% bigger battery, although that could have some connection to it. More on that later.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first monster scooter and it appears there will be a lot of high-performance, flagship scooters this year. This is in an allusion to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the line as an extremely light-weight scooter with borrowed specs of beast-scooters. It’s heavier than the local light heavyweights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ along with the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 lbs. It also comes with 11 inches road tires, typical of beast scooters such as the Storm and Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also remarkable with a far above trend top speed per dollar, a remarkable distance per pound and excellent brakes per dollar. That’s not even the best aspect. The off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than the closest competing beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Electric Scooter Varla Eagle One Pro.
Thanks to the large tires-something that you’re always hoping to hear about-the scooter has great ground clearance of more than 36 inches. They’re also excellent for traction, but could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy when riding city trails. However, the stiffness is useful when traveling off-road. You might not like the narrow deck or uncomfortably shaped kickplate, particularly off-road.

Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro’s speed isn’t typical of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is so much better. Electric Scooter Varla Eagle One Pro. It’s tested with an speed of 2.1 seconds up to 15 millimeter mark. This is the performance expected of veteran heavyweight scooters like those of Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds along with it’s Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s sole competition in the light heavyweight class is Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration to 15 mph.
Eagle One Pro Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means that it also shares identical dead zones. You might want to find an angle to anchor your thumb to stabilize it and give it an anchor location when engaged.
We love this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for the price. The scooter boasts a whopping 40 mph top speed, which is much higher than the what is considered to be average when it is compared with other scooters in the same price range. The more expensive Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits a 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at an expensive price is only able to reach 36 mmh.
However it also faces competition from lower-priced models, such as that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which has a top speed that is 43 mph, while the similarly priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight, the scooter can be found in a class of its own. It also compares with the original Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro scooter is impressive for a lot of things but hill-climbing is one of the most impressive. This electric scooter can go up hills without losing too much power, and it does not seem to slow down when there are heavy riders or low battery conditions. During our 60 m hill climb at 10 percent slope and a 10% gradient, the scooter could maintain an average speed of 17 mph (and more than) till about 10% charge. Electric Scooter Varla Eagle One Pro.
The company credits the superb hill-climbing ability to the strong twin motors, rated at 1000 W each, with a maximum power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors generate 36 Nm of torque, enough to propel the scooter through hills of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on a scooter and it’s true that the Varla Eagle Pro scooter gives a good 58 km of range tested. The only scooter less than $400 from the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the range is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range of 41 miles. It beat other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile distance, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles, as well as the Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
The battery behind the range lies a high capacity 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s larger and more energy-dense with 21700 battery cells. It’s a leap from its predecessor, it was the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and had only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries integrate smart battery management systems to ensure that the battery’s life is not compromised. Charging the battery to capacity takes 8-9 hrs, but you can secure a second charger and reduce charge time to about 4-5 hours.
We would like to see all scooters have hydraulic brakes. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters with cable brakes are unsafe or insecure when they need to stop. Absolutely not. In fact the cable brakes and EABS on the Varla Eagle Pro feature proven braking power that is truly remarkable and easy to get right. Electric Scooter Varla Eagle One Pro.
The electric scooter stops in 3 meters from an approximate speed of 15 mph. The performance is comparable with Vsett 10+. Vsett 10, which is 10+. In addition, the Varla Eagle Pro’s stopping power outdoes those of the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E and Nami BURN-E2.
You may not enjoy squeezing the cable-actuated levers that are on the Varla Eagle Pro the way you would do on an electric scooter equipped with hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes don’t leave much on the table when they perform.
The EABS prevents that the brakes aren’t locking up. They are adjustable via the P-settings displayed on the display. You can adjust them between 0 and 2 where 0 is on an insufficient setting, while 2 is a stronger setting.
The ride quality is acceptable, but it’s not great. The only thing they don’t talk about when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that priority falls on off-roading features.
The pneumatic road tires that are tubeless are great for comfort, especially when driving offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for evading pinch flats from rocks. If, however, you’re buying the scooter to use primarily on city tracks, then it’s better to switch to self-sealing knobby tires. These would automatically double your traction, retain your comfort and cut down on maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and the 17 centimeter clearance on the ground, obstacles on the track won’t scratch the underdeck
The suspension system feels stiff. This Varla Eagle Pro would have been better off with adjustable shocks or adapting a spring with less spring force. The stiff suspension is efficient when handling large bumps and stops the scooter from falling off. On well-maintained tracks the suspension can feel a little too bouncy for ease of use.
It is also equipped with a steering damper. Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. At high speeds as well as straight track, users will enjoy excellent stability. At top speed, the stability does not equal that offered by dual stem monsters such as the Wolf King GT but rather is more like a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a damper for steering installed. On the downside, the damper for steering also implies that the riders need to exert more force on the handlebars when trying to negotiate turns.
The deck is another cause of concern. It is too short and, due to the lack of usable deck real estate the riders are forced to put their back foot on the footrest which isn’t designed ergonomically. The bright side is 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 is designed for comfort and convenience. Controls are also ergonomically designed and complement the clear, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, with the heavy feel of the steering and the athletic riding stance and the fast acceleration The Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride but could also be quite workout when you’re racing hard.
