The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s top-selling two-wheeler model, called the Eagle One. Varlar Reviews. The style has remained the same, the Eagle One Pro is more powerful, faster and comes with a bigger battery pack.
Take what you knew about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro comes out, and it is nothing like its predecessor. It’s not just about the 52% larger battery, although that could have some significance–more on that later.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first beast scooter, and it seems there will be a lot of top-quality high-performance scooters this year. 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’s heavier than resident light weights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, and Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 pounds. Additionally, it also features 11 inches road tires that are typical of beast scooters like the Storm and Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also remarkable with a far over the norm top speed per dollar, exceptional performance per pound and excellent braking per dollar. That’s not even the best feature. This off-road scooter costs about $640 less than the most comparable beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varlar Reviews.
Thanks to the large tires-something you’ve always wanted to hear about-the scooter offers a great ground clearance at over 36 inches. They are also good for traction, but could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy on city trails. However, the stiffness is useful when traveling off-road. But you might not like the shorter deck or the uncomfortably shaped kickplate, particularly off-road.

It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s speed isn’t typical of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is much more powerful. Varlar Reviews. It has a tested acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 millimeters mark. This is the performance typical of heavyweights from the past such as that of the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, and it’s Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s only competition in the light heavyweight class will be the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration up from 15 to mph.
Eagle One Pro Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means that it also shares the same dead zone. You might want to find an angle that will anchor your thumb to keep it in place and provide it a reference location when engaging.
We are awestruck by this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for the price. The scooter manages a whopping 40 mph top speed, which is much higher than the average when it is compared with other scooters that are in the same price bracket. The more expensive Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at a higher price has a lower speed of 36 millimeters.
However it also has competition from cheaper models such as those of Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves an top speed at 43 mph and the comparable Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight it is a scooter stands in its weight class and is in a league of its own and only compares with the original Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro scooter is impressive for a lot of things, and hill-climbing is definitely one of them. The electric scooter will go up the hills without losing power, and it isn’t slowing down when there are heavy riders or poor battery levels. During our 60 m hill climb at 10% gradient, the scooter could maintain an average speed of 17 mph (and more than) till about 10% charge. Varlar Reviews.
The company credits the superb hill climbing to the robust dual motors that are rated at 1000 W each, with a peak power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors deliver 36 Nm of torque, enough to propel the scooter through hills of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on an electric scooter, and it’s true that the Varla Eagle One Pro scooter gives a good 58 kilometers of tested range. It is interesting to note that the only scooter that is within the $400 range from that of the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range to 41 miles. It outran other scooters with higher prices, 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.
Behind the range is a high capacity battery of 60V 24 Ah that has 1440 Wh of power. It’s larger and more energy-dense with 21700 cell batteries. It’s a leap from the predecessor, called it was the Eagle One, whose battery was rated at 946 wh and had only 18650 lithium cell. Both batteries have smart battery management systems to keep the battery in good condition. Charging the battery to capacity takes between 8 and 9 hours however you can purchase an additional charger to reduce charging time to four to five hours.
Let’s face it; we would like to see all scooters have hydraulic brakes. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters with cable brakes aren’t dangerous or unreliable when it comes to stopping. Absolutely not. Actually the cable brakes as well as EABS in Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro have a tested braking force that is truly remarkable and very easy to use. Varlar Reviews.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from an approximate speed of 15 mph. This performance is in line with that of the Vsett 10-plus. The Varla Eagle Pro’s stopping power outdoes the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, as well as Nami BURN-E2.
You may not enjoy squeezing the levers that are powered by cables in the Varla Eagle Pro like you would with an electric scooter with hydraulic brakes, however, the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes leave nothing in the dust when they perform.
The EABS prevents the brakes from locking. They are adjustable using the P-settings that are displayed on the display. You can set them between 0 and 2, which means 0 is a weak setting, and 2 is a stronger setting.
The ride quality is good, but it’s not great. The caveat they never talk about when advertising all-terrain electric scooters is that they are primarily focused on the off-roading measures.
The tubeless pneumatic road tires are ideal for comfort, especially when traveling offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for evading pinch flats from rocks. However, if you’re getting the scooter for use mostly on roads, then it’s better to switch to self-sealing, knobby tires. These would automatically double the traction of your scooter, maintain your comfort and cut down on maintenance. Additionally, due to the tires and 17 centimeter ground clearance obstructions on the track will not scrape the deck beneath.
The suspension is stiff. The Varla Eagle Pro could have benefited more from adjustable shocks or an existing spring with lower spring rates. However, the stiff setup is efficient when dealing with large bumps and prevents the scooter from falling off. On well-maintained tracks, the suspension feels somewhat bouncy for comfort.
It is also equipped with a steering damper. Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. At high speeds and straight tracks, riders can enjoy a great stability. At top speed, the stability isn’t as good as that offered by dual stem monsters like Wolf King GT. Wolf King GT but rather feels like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn equipped with a steering damper. The downside is that the steering damper also makes it so that drivers need to exert more force on the handlebars when negotiating turns.
The deck is yet another area of concern. It’s too narrow and due to this lack of deck real estate, riders are constantly forced to place the back foot on the footrest, which isn’t designed ergonomically. The bright side is that the Varla Eagle Pro compensates for a poor stance with an ergonomically laid-out cockpit that is comfortable to use. It was designed to be comfortable and user-friendliness. Controls can be also ergonomically designed to complement the well-readable, large 9 centimeter screen.
Overall, with the heavy steering feel, the sporty riding stance and the rumbling acceleration The Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride, but it can also be quite workout when you’re racing hard.
