The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the manufacturer’s most popular two-wheeler, which is called the Eagle One. Varla Pegasus Electric Scooter. While the style has remained the same, the Eagle One Pro is more efficient, more powerful and comes with a bigger battery pack.
You know what you learned concerning Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. The Varla Eagle One is now available and isn’t like the one it replaced. It’s not just about the 52% bigger battery, even though it has 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 plenty of flagship high-performance scooters this year. This is a an allusion to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the line as it’s a light weight scooter with specs borrowed taken from the beast scooters. It is heavier than the local lightweight weights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, and Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 lbs. It also features 11 inches road tires, typical of beast scooters such as Wolf King GT and the Storm or Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also remarkable with a far above average top speed for a dollar. It also has an an impressive distance per pound as well as excellent braking for every dollar. That’s not even the best feature. This off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Pegasus Electric Scooter.
Due to the huge tires-something you’ve always wanted to hear-the scooter has great ground clearance of more than 36 inches. They’re also excellent for traction, however they could be improved. The suspension is firm and bouncy on city trails, but the stiffness is useful when driving off-road.

It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration is not typical of light heavyweight scooters-it is so much better. Varla Pegasus Electric Scooter. It’s tested with an speed of 2.1 seconds up to 15 millimeters mark. This is what is 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 it’s Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s only rival in the light heavyweight category is Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration, accelerating from 15 to mph.
The Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means it also has the same dead zone. You may want to consider finding an angle to anchor your thumb in order to keep it in place and provide it an ideal reference location when engaging.
We’re awestruck with this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price. The scooter manages a whopping forty mph top speed, which is much higher than the average when it is compared with other scooters 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 has competition from cheaper models, such as those of Wolf Warrior X Pro which manages an top speed at 43 mph, while the similarly priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight in the weight class, the scooter is in a class of its own and only is comparable to that of the first Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro scooter is remarkable for many things, and hill-climbing is definitely one of the best. The electric scooter will go up the hills without losing energy, and it isn’t slowing down on heavy riders or low battery conditions. When we conducted our 60-meter hill climb at 10% gradient it was found that the scooter was able to maintain a speed of around 17 mph (and more than) up to about 10% charge. Varla Pegasus Electric Scooter.
The company credits the superb hill-climbing ability to the strong dual motors rated at 1000W each, and a peak power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors generate an impressive 36 Nm or torque sufficient to propel the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on a scooter which is why the Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter offers a decent 58 km of range tested. It is interesting to note that the only scooter that is within the $400 range of its Eagle One Pro that can beat it on the range is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, which has a range tested of 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 and Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
The battery behind the range is a large capacity battery of 60V 24 Ah with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s bigger and more efficient with 21700 battery cells. This is an improvement from its predecessor, the Eagle One, whose battery was valued at 946 wh and came with only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries integrate intelligent battery management systems that ensure that the battery’s life is not compromised. Charge the battery up to capacity takes between 8 and 9 hours however you can purchase an additional charger to reduce charge times to around 4 to 5 hours.
Let’s face it; we would prefer that all scooters came with hydraulic brakes. However, that doesn’t mean electric scooters equipped with cable brakes aren’t dangerous or undependable when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. In fact, the cable brakes plus EABS on the Varla Eagle Pro have a proven braking power that is truly impressive and easy to get right. Varla Pegasus Electric Scooter.
The e-scooter can stop in only 3 meters from the speed at 15 mph. This is in line with the Vsett 10-plus. In addition, 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 levers with cable action on the Varla Eagle Pro as you would on an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s disc brakes don’t leave much to be desired when they perform.
The EABS prevents your brakes from locking. They are adjustable using the P-settings on the display. They can be adjusted from 0 to 2, where 0 is on the weak setting and 2 is a stronger setting.
Ride quality can be described as good however it’s not the best. One thing they do not mention when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that priority falls on off-roading features.
The pneumatic road tires with no tube are great for comfort, particularly when riding offroad. Their tubeless nature is great for evading pinch flats from rocks. But, if you’re using the scooter for use mostly on urban tracks, it’s better to switch to self-sealing knobby tires. They will automatically increase your traction, retain your comfort and cut down on maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and the 17 centimeter clearance on the ground obstacles in the track will not scrape the deck beneath.
The suspension system feels rigid. This Varla Eagle Pro would have benefited more from adjustable shocks or adapting a spring with less spring force. But the rigid setup is effective when dealing with large bumps and stops the scooter from crashing. On well-maintained tracks the suspension is somewhat bouncy for comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. At high speeds along straight tracks users will experience excellent stability. At top speed, the stability doesn’t match the stability of dual stem beasts such as those on the Wolf King GT but rather is more like a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a steering damper installed. On the downside, the steering damper also implies that the riders will be forced to work harder on the handlebars when making turns.
The deck is yet another area to be concerned about. It is too short and due to this lack of deck real estate, riders are constantly forced to put their back foot on the footrest, which isn’t designed ergonomically. The only bright side to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro makes up for a poor stance with an excellently laid-out and comfortable cockpit that is comfortable to use. It was designed to be comfortable and ease of use. The controls have been also ergonomically designed to complement the large, well-lit 9 centimeter display.
Overall, with the heavy feel of the steering and the athletic riding stance and the fast acceleration that the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride. It could also be a bit of an exercise when you’re riding hard.
