Varla Pegasus Review
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the manufacturer’s most popular two-wheeler, which is The Eagle One. Varla Pegasus Review. While the design has pretty much stayed the same however, the Eagle One Pro is more powerful, faster and features a larger battery pack.
Learn concerning Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro comes here and it’s nothing like the one it replaced. It’s not only about the larger 52% 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 appears there will be a lot of high-performance, flagship scooters this year. 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 with specs borrowed taken from the beast scooters. It surpasses the weight of the local lightweight heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ as well as the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 pounds. It also comes with 11 inches road tires, typical of beast scooters like the Storm or Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well over the norm top speed in dollars, an impressive distance per pound as well as excellent braking for every dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive feature. The off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than the closest competing beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Pegasus Review.
Due to the huge tires-something you always want to hear-the scooter is able to stand on the ground with a good clearance, with a total of 36 inches. They are also good for traction, but could be better. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy for city trails, but the stiffness comes in handy when driving off-road. However, you may not be a fan of the short deck or its uncomfortably shaped kickplate, particularly off-road.

Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration isn’t typical of lightweight heavyweight scooters. It is much more powerful. Varla Pegasus Review. It has a tested speed of 2.1 seconds up to 15 mmh mark. This is the performance you would expect from heavyweights with a long history like those of Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, and the Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. This is because the Varla Eagle Pro’s only competition in the light heavyweight category is Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration up between 15 and 15 mph.
It is worth noting that the Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which implies that it also shares similar dead zones. You might want to find an angle to secure your thumb in order to stabilize it and give it an ideal reference point when engaging.
We are awestruck by this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price tag. The scooter has a staggering forty mph top speed, which is well above 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 an expensive price has a lower speed of 36 millimeters.
However it also is competing with lower models like the Wolf Warrior X Pro which manages a top speed at 43 mph as opposed to the similarly priced 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 compares to that of the first Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is remarkable for many things, and hill-climbing is definitely one of them. The electric scooter will go up hills without losing too much energy, and it does not seem to slow down when there are heavy riders or poor battery levels. During our 60 m hill test with a 10% gradient, the scooter was able to maintain the speed of 17 mph (and more than) until about 10% charge. Varla Pegasus Review.
The manufacturer credits the impeccable hill climbing to the robust dual motors that are rated at 1000 W each, with a maximum power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors produce the equivalent of 36 Nm of torque, enough to push the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on a 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 from its Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a tested range that was 41 miles. It outran other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile range, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles as well as the Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
Behind the range is a large capacity, 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s larger and more efficient with 21700 battery cells. This is an improvement from the predecessor, called that of the Eagle One, whose battery was rated at 946 wh and only came with 18650 lithium cell. Both batteries have smart battery management systems to keep the battery in good condition. Charge the battery up to capacity takes 8-9 hrs, however you can purchase an additional charger to reduce charge time to about 4 to 5 hours.
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 undependable when they need to stop. Absolutely not. In fact the cable brakes and EABS of Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro offer tested braking power that is truly remarkable and easy to get right. Varla Pegasus Review.
The electric scooter stops in 3 meters from the speed at 15 mph. The performance is comparable with the Vsett 10-plus. 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 not as fun to squeeze the levers that are powered by cables on the Varla Eagle Pro the way you would do on an electric scooter that has 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. They can be adjusted from 0 to 2, with 0 being a weak setting, and 2 is for a high setting.
The ride quality is acceptable however it’s not the best. The caveat they never talk about when advertising all-terrain electric scooters is that they are primarily focused on the off-roading measures.
The pneumatic road tires with no tube are ideal for comfort, especially when riding offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for evading pinch flats from rocks. However, if you’re getting the scooter to use primarily on roads, then you’d be better off switching to self-sealing, tubeless knobby tires. They will automatically increase your traction, preserve your comfort, and reduce maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and 17 centimeter clearance on the ground obstacles in the track will not scrape the deck beneath.
The suspension system feels rigid. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro would benefit more from adjustable shocks or adapting an existing spring with lower spring rates. But the rigid setup is efficient when taking on large bumps, and prevents the scooter from bottoming out. On well-maintained tracks the suspension is somewhat bouncy for comfort.
It is also equipped with a steering damper. Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. In high-speed along straight tracks riders will enjoy excellent stability. At top speed, the stability does not equal that from dual-stem beasts like those on the Wolf King GT but rather is more like a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn equipped with a steering damper. The downside is that the steering damper also makes it so that drivers have to push harder on the handlebars when making turns.
The deck is another point to be concerned about. It is too short, and with this shortage of deck space, riders are constantly forced to put their back foot on the footrest which isn’t ergonomically designed. One bright spot to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro can make 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 convenience. The controls can be also ergonomically designed to complement the well-readable, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, with the heavy feeling of the steering and the athletic riding stance and the fast acceleration, the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride, but it can also be workout when you’re riding hard.
