Varla Eagle Electric Scooter
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s top-selling two-wheeler model, The Eagle One. Varla Eagle Electric Scooter. Although the design has pretty much stayed the same however, The Eagle One Pro is more powerful, faster and comes with a bigger battery.
Take what you knew about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. Varla’s new Varla Eagle One is now available and it’s nothing like the one it replaced. It’s not just about the 52% bigger battery, although that could have some connection to it. More on that to come.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first monster scooter, and it seems we’ll see plenty 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 line as an extremely light-weight scooter that borrows its specs from beast scooters. It’s heavier than the local lightweight heavyweights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, as well as the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. And, it also comes with 11 inches road tires, typical of beast scooters like the Storm and Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well over the norm top speed for a dollar. It also has an an impressive distance per pound as well as excellent braking per dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive part. The off-road scooter is priced at about $640 less than the closest competing beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Eagle Electric Scooter.
Because of the big tires-something that you’re always hoping to hear about-the scooter offers a great ground clearance of more than 36 inches. They’re also good for traction, but could be improved. The suspension is firm and bouncy for city trails. However, the stiffness is useful when traveling off-road. You might not like the short deck or its uncomfortably shaped kickplate, particularly off-road.

The Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration does not match that of lightweight heavyweight scooters. It is far superior. Varla Eagle Electric Scooter. It is tested to have an acceleration of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 millimeter mark. This is the performance you would expect from heavyweights with a long history such as that of the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, as well as it’s Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s sole competition in the light heavyweight class will be the 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 it also has similar dead zones. It is possible to locate an angle to secure your thumb to keep it in place and provide it an ideal reference location when engaged.
We love our love for the Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price tag. The scooter has a staggering 40 mph top speed, which is well above average when contrasted with other scooters within the same price range. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits a 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at an expensive price has a lower speed of 36 millimeters.
However, it also has competition from cheaper models, such as that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves a top speed at 43 mph as opposed to the similarly priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class in the weight class, the scooter is in a league of its own and only compares with that of the first Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter is impressive for a lot of things, and hill-climbing is definitely one of the most impressive. The electric scooter will go up the hills without losing energy, and it doesn’t seem to let up when there are heavy riders or low battery situations. During our 60 m hill test at a 10 percent gradient, the scooter was able to keep an average speed of 17 mph (and over) till around 10% charge. Varla Eagle Electric Scooter.
The manufacturer credits the impeccable hill climbing to the robust dual motors that are rated at 1000W each, and a peak power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors produce the equivalent of 36 Nm or torque sufficient to push the scooter through hills of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on the scooter and this Varla Eagle Pro scooter has a reasonable distance of 58 kilometers in its tested range. It is interesting to note that the only scooter within $400 of the Eagle One Pro that can beat it on the scale is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a tested range to 41 miles. It beat out other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles along with the Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
Behind the range is a large capacity, 60V 24 Ah battery that has 1440 Wh of power. It is larger and more energy-dense with 21700 battery cells. This is an improvement from its predecessor, that of the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and came with only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries integrate smart battery management systems to ensure that the battery’s life is not compromised. Charge the battery up to capacity can take between 8 and 9 hours, however you can purchase a second charger and reduce charging time to 4-5 hours.
We would like to see all scooters have hydraulic brakes. However, that doesn’t mean electric scooters that have cable brakes are dangerous or undependable when they need to stop. Absolutely not. Actually the cable brakes as well as EABS of the Varla Eagle Pro offer proven braking power that is truly exceptional and very easy to use. Varla Eagle Electric Scooter.
The electric scooter stops in 3 meters from an approximate speed that is 15 mph. This is in line with the Vsett 10-plus. Again, the Varla Eagle’s stopping power outdoes those of the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, and 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 mechanical disc brakes don’t leave much on the table when they perform.
The EABS prevents your brakes from locking up. They are adjustable using the P-settings displayed on the display. They can be adjusted in between zero and two with 0 being a weak setting, and 2 refers to a strong setting.
Ride quality can be described as decent, but it’s not great. The only thing they don’t discuss when talking about 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 riding offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect to avoid pinch flats caused by rocks. But, if you’re using the scooter to ride primarily off city tracks, then you’re better off changing to self-sealing, tubeless knobby tires. They will automatically increase your traction, preserve your comfort, and reduce maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and the 17 centimeter clearance from the ground, obstacles in the track will not scratch the underdeck
The suspension system feels stiff. The Varla Eagle Pro would have benefited more from adjustable shocks, or by adjusting the spring to less spring force. The stiff suspension is effective when taking on large bumps, and stops the scooter from bottoming out. When the tracks are well maintained the suspension can feel a little too bouncy for comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. When driving at high speeds as well as straight track, users will experience excellent stability. At top speed the stability doesn’t match the stability offered by dual stem monsters such as Wolf King GT. Wolf King GT but rather is more like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a damper for steering installed. On the downside, the damper on the steering also makes it so that drivers will be forced to work harder on the bar handles when trying to negotiate turns.
The deck is another point to be concerned about. It is too short and, due to the lack of usable deck real estate, riders are constantly forced to rest their back feet on the footrest that isn’t ergonomically designed. The bright side is the Varla Eagle Pro compensates for the sloppy stance by providing an ergonomically laid-out cockpit that is easy to hold. It was designed to be comfortable and convenience. Its controls can be also ergonomically designed and complement the well-readable, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the heavy steering feel and the athletic riding stance and the rumbling acceleration, the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride. It can also be quite workout when you’re racing hard.
