The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s top-selling two-wheeler model, called the Eagle One. Varla Review. Although the model has largely stayed the same, The Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker and comes with a bigger battery.
Learn about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. Varla’s new Varla Eagle One Pro comes now available and isn’t like the one it replaced. It’s not just about the larger 52% battery, though that has some connection to it. More on that to come.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first monster scooter, and it seems there will be a lot of flagship high-performance scooters this year. This is a the context of Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the fence as it’s a light weight scooter with borrowed specs from beast scooters. It is heavier than its light heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ as well as the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 lbs. It also has 11 inches of road tires, typical of beast scooters such as Wolf King GT and the Storm as well as the Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also remarkable with a far above average top speed for a dollar. It also has an a remarkable range per pound, and great brakes per dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive feature. This off-road scooter costs about $640 less than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Review.
Thanks to the large tires-something you always want to hear-the scooter offers a 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, but the stiffness is useful when riding off-road. However, you may not be a fan of the narrow deck or 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 Review. It’s tested with an acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 mmh mark. This is what is expected of veteran heavyweight scooters such as the 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 only rival in the light-heavyweight category includes that of the 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 implies that it also has identical dead zones. It is possible to locate an angle to anchor your thumb in order to keep it in place and provide it an ideal reference location when engaged.
We’re awestruck with this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price tag. The scooter manages a whopping 40 mph top speed, which is a lot higher than what is considered to be average when contrasted with other scooters within the same price range. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at a higher price is only able to reach 36 mmh.
However it also is competing with lower models, such as that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which manages a top speed at 43 mph and the comparable Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight it is a scooter is in a class of its own and compares with that of the first Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro scooter is impressive for a lot of things, and hill-climbing is definitely one of the most impressive. This electric scooter will go up the hills without losing power, and it does not seem to slow down on heavy riders or poor battery levels. When we conducted our 60-meter hill climb at 10% slope it was found that the scooter was able to maintain a speed of 17 mph (and more than) until approximately 10% of charge. Varla Review.
The manufacturer credits the impeccable hill climbing to the robust twin motors, rated at 1000 W each, with a maximum power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors produce 36 Nm or torque which is enough to propel the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
There is nothing better than good mileage on the scooter and this Varla Eagle One Pro scooter offers a decent 58 kilometers of tested range. The only scooter within $400 of that of the Eagle One Pro that can beat it on the distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a tested range that was 41 miles. It beat other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles as well as the Vsett 10+ with 33 miles.
Behind the range is a high capacity 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s bigger and more efficient with 21700 battery cells. This is a step up from the predecessor, called the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and came with only 18650 lithium cell. Both batteries have intelligent battery management systems that preserve life. The process of charging the battery to its capacity can take between 8 and 9 hours, however you can purchase an additional charger to reduce charging time to 4-5 hours.
We wish all scooters had hydraulic brakes. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters that have cable brakes are unsafe or insecure when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. Actually the cable brakes as well as EABS in Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro have a tested braking power that is truly impressive and very easy to use. Varla Review.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from a speed at 15 mph. This 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, as well as 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 mechanical disc brakes don’t leave much to be desired when it comes to performance.
The EABS stops the brakes from locking. They are adjustable via the P-settings displayed on the display. You can set them in between zero and two, where 0 is on an insufficient setting, while 2 is a stronger setting.
The ride quality is acceptable however it’s not the best. One thing they do not talk about when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that they are primarily focused on the off-roading measures.
The pneumatic road tires with no tube are great for comfort, particularly when driving offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for avoiding pinch flats that are caused by rocks. But, if you’re using the scooter for use mostly on roads, then you’d be better off switching to self-sealing, tubeless knobby tires. These will instantly increase your traction, retain your comfort, and decrease maintenance. Additionally, due to the tires and 17 centimeter ground clearance, obstacles in the track will not scrape the deck beneath.
The suspension system feels rigid. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro could have been better off with adjustable shocks or adapting the spring to a lower spring rate. The stiff suspension is efficient when taking on large bumps, and keeps the scooter from falling off. If the track is well maintained the suspension can feel slightly bouncy and not enough for ease of use.
The Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. At high speeds as well as straight track, riders can enjoy a great stability. At top speed, the stability does not equal that offered by dual stem monsters such as the Wolf King GT but rather feels like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn equipped with a steering damper. However, the damper on the steering also means that riders have to push harder on the bar handles when making turns.
The deck is another cause to be concerned about. It is too short and, due to the lack of deck space it is a constant struggle for riders to place the back foot on the footrest that isn’t designed ergonomically. The bright side is that the Varla Eagle Pro can make up for the sloppy stance by providing an excellently laid-out and comfortable cockpit that is easy on your hands. It was designed to be comfortable and ease of use. The controls can be also ergonomically designed to complement the large, well-lit 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the heavy feeling of the steering as well as the sporty riding posture and the rumbling acceleration that the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride but can also be a bit of an exercise when you’re riding hard.
