Varla Electric Scooters
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the manufacturer’s best-selling two-wheeler, the Eagle One. Varla Electric Scooters. While the design has pretty much stayed the same however, the Eagle One Pro is more powerful, faster and features a larger battery.
Take what you knew about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro is out and isn’t like its predecessor. It’s not only about the 52% bigger battery, although that could have some connection to it. More about that in the near future.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first beast scooter, and it seems we’ll see a lot of high-performance, flagship scooters in the coming season. This is in an allusion to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the edge of being an extremely light-weight scooter that borrows its specs from beast scooters. It is heavier than the local light weights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, and Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. And, it also has 11 inches of road tires, which is typical of beast scooters like Wolf King GT and the Storm or Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also remarkable with a far above average top speed in dollars, exceptional range per pound, and excellent brakes per dollar. That’s not even the best feature. The off-road scooter is priced at about $640 less than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Electric Scooters.
Because of the big tires-something you’ve always wanted to hear about-the scooter is able to stand on the ground with a good clearance, with a total of 36 inches. They’re also great for traction but could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy for 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.

Pros And Cons

It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration isn’t typical of light heavyweight scooters-it is far superior. Varla Electric Scooters. It has a tested speed of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 millimeters mark. This is the speed that’s you would expect from heavyweights with a long history such as those of Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, along with the Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s only competition in the light heavyweight class includes that of the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration between 15 and 15 mph.
Eagle One Pro Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means that it also has identical dead zones. You may want to consider finding an angle to anchor your thumb in order to stabilize it and give it a reference location when engaging.
We love the Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for the price. The scooter has a staggering forty mph top speed, which is well above what is considered to be average when compared to others within the same price range. The more expensive Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 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 like that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves an top speed of 43 mph as opposed to the similar priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class it is a scooter can be found in a league of its own. It also is comparable with that of the first Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro scooter is remarkable for many things but hill-climbing is one of the most impressive. This electric scooter can go up hills without losing too much energy, and it isn’t slowing down with heavy riders or in low battery situations. When we conducted our 60-meter hill test at a 10% gradient, the scooter could maintain the speed that was around 17 mph (and over) until approximately 10% of charge. Varla Electric Scooters.
The company credits the superb hill climbing to the robust dual motors that are rated at 1000W each, with a peak power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors generate an impressive 36 Nm of torque, enough to push the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on the scooter and this Varla Eagle One Pro scooter has a reasonable 58 kilometers of tested range. It is interesting to note that the only scooter within $400 of the Eagle One Pro that can surpass it in terms of range is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range to 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+ with 33 miles.
The battery behind the range is a high capacity battery of 60V 24 Ah that has 1440 Wh of power. It is larger and has more energy-dense 21700 cell batteries. It’s a leap from its predecessor, it was the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and came with only 18650 lithium cell. Both batteries are equipped with intelligent battery management systems that ensure that the battery’s life is not compromised. Charging the battery to capacity can take between 8 and 9 hours, but you can secure a second charger and reduce charging time to 4 to 5 hours.
We would prefer that all scooters came with hydraulic brakes. However, that doesn’t mean electric scooters with cable brakes aren’t dangerous or undependable when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. In fact the cable brakes and EABS of the Varla Eagle Pro have a tested braking force that is truly exceptional and simple to set up. Varla Electric Scooters.
The e-scooter can stop in only 3 meters from the speed at 15 mph. This performance is in line with Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+. Again, the Varla Eagle’s stopping power outdoes Kaabo Wolf King, the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, and Nami BURN-E2.
It’s not as fun to squeeze the cable-actuated levers in the Varla Eagle Pro like you would with an electric scooter equipped with hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s disc brakes do not leave anything on the table when it comes to performance.
The EABS prevents your brakes from locking. They are adjustable using the P-settings that are displayed on the display. They can be adjusted from 0 to 2, with 0 being a weak setting, and 2 is for a high setting.
Ride quality can be described as good however it’s not the best. The caveat they never talk about when advertising all-terrain electric scooters is that the primary focus should be on the off-roading measures.
The pneumatic road tires with no tube are excellent for comfort, especially when traveling offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect to avoid pinch flats caused by rocks. However, if you’re getting 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 on the track won’t scratch the underdeck
The suspension is rigid. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro would benefit more from adjustable shocks or adapting an existing spring with a lower spring rate. However, the stiff setup is effective when taking on large bumps, and prevents the scooter from falling off. On well-maintained tracks the suspension is slightly bouncy and not enough for the comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. When driving at high speeds and straight tracks, users can enjoy a great stability. At top speed the stability does not equal that offered by dual stem monsters like those on the Wolf King GT but rather feels like a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn equipped with a steering damper. The downside is that the steering damper also means that riders will need to exert more force on the bar handles when trying to negotiate turns.
The deck is another cause of concern. It’s too narrow and due to this lack of usable deck real estate the riders are forced to place the back foot on the footrest which is not ergonomically designed. The only bright side is that the Varla Eagle Pro compensates for a poor stance with an excellently laid-out and comfortable cockpit that is easy to hold. It’s designed to provide comfort and ease of use. Controls are also ergonomically designed and complement the clear, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the heavy feel of the steering as well as the sporty riding posture and the rumbling acceleration, the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride but could also be workout when you’re on the road for a long time.
