The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s best-selling two-wheeler, the Eagle One. Varlascooter.Com. The design has pretty much stayed the same, it’s the Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker, and has a larger battery pack.
You know what you learned concerning Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro is now available and isn’t like its predecessor. It’s not only about the 52% larger battery, even though it has something to do with it–more on that to come.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first monster scooter and it appears we’ll see plenty of top-quality high-performance scooters this year. This is in reference to 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’s heavier than the local lightweight heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ along with the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 pounds. It also comes with 11 inches road tires that are typical of beast scooters such as the Storm and Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also remarkable with a far above trend top speed per dollar, an impressive performance per pound as well as excellent braking per dollar. It’s not even the greatest aspect. This off-road scooter costs about $640 less than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varlascooter.Com.
Because of the big tires-something you always want to hear about-the scooter is able to stand on the ground with a good clearance at over 36 inches. They’re also excellent for traction, but could be improved. The suspension is firm and bouncy for urban trails, but the stiffness can be useful when traveling off-road. However, you may not be a fan of the shorter deck or the uncomfortable kickplate, especially when riding off-road.

The Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration isn’t typical of lightweight heavyweight scooters. It is so much better. Varlascooter.Com. It has a tested acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 mmh 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, as well as the Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. This is because the Varla Eagle Pro’s only rival in the light heavyweight category is that of the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration 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 means it also has the same dead zone. It is possible to locate an angle to secure your thumb to keep it in place and provide it a reference location when engaged.
We are awestruck by this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for the price. The scooter has a staggering 40 mph top speed, which is much higher than the average when it is compared with other scooters in the same price range. The more expensive Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits a 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at the higher cost, only reaches 36 mmh.
However it also faces competition from lower-priced models like that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which manages an top speed at 43 mph as opposed to the similar priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight, the scooter can be found in a class of its own. It also is comparable with its predecessor, the Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is amazing for a variety of things but hill-climbing is one of the best. This electric scooter can go up steep hills without losing any power, and it isn’t slowing down on heavy riders or poor battery levels. During our 60 m hill test with a 10% slope and a 10% gradient, the scooter was able to keep an average speed of around 17 mph (and more than) until approximately 10% of charge. Varlascooter.Com.
The company credits the superb hill climbing to the robust dual motors that are rated at 1000W each, with a peak power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors generate the equivalent of 36 Nm or torque which is enough to push the scooter upwards up to 35deg.
There is nothing better than good mileage on a scooter, and this Varla Eagle One Pro scooter has a reasonable 58 kilometers of tested range. The only scooter that is within the $400 range of that of the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the scale is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, which has a range tested that was 41 miles. It outran other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles along with the Vsett 10+ with 33 miles.
The battery behind the range is a high capacity 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s larger and more efficient with 21700 cells in the battery. This is an improvement from the predecessor, called the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and had only 18650 lithium cell. Both batteries have intelligent battery management systems that ensure that the battery’s life is not compromised. Charge the battery up to capacity can take between 8 and 9 hours, however, you can get an additional charger to reduce charge time to about 4-5 hours.
Let’s face it; we would like to see all scooters have hydraulic brakes. However, that doesn’t mean electric scooters that have cable brakes are dangerous or undependable when it comes to stopping. Absolutely not. In fact the cable brakes and EABS of the Varla Eagle Pro feature proven braking power that is truly remarkable and simple to set up. Varlascooter.Com.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from an approximate speed at 15 mph. This performance is in line with Vsett 10+. Vsett 10, which is 10+. The Varla Eagle’s stopping power is superior to those of 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 that are powered by cables in the Varla Eagle Pro as you would on an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes do not leave anything on the table when they perform.
The EABS stops your brakes from locking. They can be adjusted using the P-settings on the display. You can adjust them between 0 and 2 which means 0 is an insufficient setting, while 2 is a stronger setting.
Ride quality can be described as decent, but it’s not great. The only thing they don’t discuss when promoting all-terrain e-scooters is that priority falls on off-roading features.
The pneumatic road tires with no tube are great for comfort, especially when traveling offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for evading pinch flats from rocks. However, if you’re getting the scooter to ride primarily off urban tracks, it’s better to switch to self-sealing, knobby tires. These would automatically double the traction of your scooter, maintain your comfort, and reduce maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and the 17 centimeter clearance from the ground, obstacles on the track will not scratch the underdeck
The suspension system feels rigid. The Varla Eagle Pro would have benefited more from adjustable shocks, or by adjusting the spring to lower spring rates. However, the stiff setup is efficient when handling large bumps and stops the scooter from crashing. When the tracks are well maintained, the suspension feels slightly bouncy and not enough for the comfort.
It is also equipped with a steering damper. Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. When driving at high speeds as well as straight track, riders will enjoy excellent stability. At top speed, the stability doesn’t match the stability offered by dual stem monsters such as the Wolf King GT but rather feels like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a steering damper installed. The downside is that the steering damper also means that riders be forced to work harder on the handlebars when negotiating turns.
The deck is another cause to be concerned about. It is too short and, due to the lack of deck real estate, riders are constantly forced to place the back foot on the footrest which isn’t ergonomically designed. The bright side to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro compensates for a poor stance with an ergonomically laid-out cockpit that is comfortable on your hands. It’s designed to provide comfort and user-friendliness. Controls are also ergonomically designed and complement the well-readable, large 9 centimeter screen.
Overall, between the heavy feeling of the steering as well as the sporty riding posture and the fast acceleration The Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride. It can also be quite an exercise when you’re riding hard.
