The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the most popular two-wheeler, which is The Eagle One. Trottinette Varla. While the model has largely stayed the same, it’s the Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker and comes with a bigger battery.
Take what you knew regarding Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro is out, and it is nothing like the one it replaced. And it’s not just about the 52% bigger battery, although that could have some connection to it. 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 season. This is a reference to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the line as a light heavyweight scooter with borrowed specs taken from the beast scooters. It is heavier than its lightweight weights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, along with the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. And, it also comes with 11 inches road tires that are typical of beast scooters such as Wolf King GT and the Storm or Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also amazing with a way over the norm top speed in dollars, exceptional distance per pound and great brakes per dollar. That’s not even the best part. The off-road scooter costs about $640 less than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Trottinette Varla.
Due to the huge tires-something you’ve always wanted to hear about-the scooter is able to stand on the ground with a good clearance at over 36 inches. They’re also good for traction, however they could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy when riding city trails, but the stiffness comes in handy when driving off-road. You might not like the shorter deck or the uncomfortable kickplate, especially when riding off-road.

Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration is not typical of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is so much better. Trottinette Varla. It is tested to have an acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds up to 15 mmh mark. This is the performance expected of veteran heavyweight scooters like the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, and Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s only competition in the light heavyweight category will be the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration from 15 to mph.
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 anchor your thumb to ensure stability and provide it an ideal reference location when engaging.
We’re awestruck with our love for the 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 it is compared with other scooters in 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 such as that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves an top speed at 43 mph and the similar priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class, the scooter stands in its weight class and is in a class of its own. It also is comparable to its predecessor, the Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is impressive for a lot of things but hill-climbing is one of them. The electric scooter will go up the hills without losing power, and it doesn’t seem to let up on heavy riders or poor battery levels. During our 60 m hill climb at 10% gradient and a 10% gradient, the scooter was able to keep a speed of 17 mph (and more than) until about 10% charge. Trottinette Varla.
The company credits the superb hill climbing to the robust twin motors, rated at 1000W each, with a maximum power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors deliver the equivalent of 36 Nm or torque sufficient to propel the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on the scooter, and this Varla Eagle Pro scooter gives a good 58 kilometers of tested range. The only scooter within $400 of the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the scale is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, which has a range tested of 41 miles. It beat out other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles distance, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles and Vsett 10+ with 33 miles.
Behind the range lies a high capacity 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s bigger and has more energy-dense 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 integrate smart battery management systems to ensure that the battery’s life is not compromised. Charging the battery to capacity takes between 8 and 9 hours however, you can get another charger, and cut down the charging time to 4-5 hours.
We would like to see all scooters have hydraulic brakes. That’s not to say that electric scooters with cable brakes are unsafe or unreliable when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. Actually, the cable brakes plus EABS on the Varla Eagle Pro offer proven braking power that is truly impressive and simple to set up. Trottinette Varla.
The electric scooter stops in 3 meters from a speed of 15 mph. The performance is comparable with that of the Vsett 10-plus. The Varla Eagle Pro’s stopping strength is better than the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E and Nami BURN-E2.
You may not enjoy squeezing the cable-actuated levers on the Varla Eagle Pro as you would on an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes however, the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes do not leave anything in the dust when it comes to performance.
The EABS will stop the brakes from locking. They are adjustable via the P-settings on the display. You can set them from 0 to 2 with 0 being the weak setting and 2 is for a high setting.
The ride quality is good however, it’s not exceptional. The caveat they never mention when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that priority falls on the off-roading measures.
The tubeless pneumatic road tires are ideal for comfort, especially when driving offroad. The tubeless nature of these tires is ideal for avoiding pinch flats that are caused by rocks. However, if you’re getting the scooter for use mostly on urban tracks, you’re better off changing to self-sealing, knobby tires. They will automatically increase your traction, preserve your comfort, and decrease maintenance. Additionally, due to the tires and a 17 centimeter clearance on the ground, obstacles on the track will not scrape the underdeck
The suspension system feels rigid. This Varla Eagle Pro would have benefited more from adjustable shocks, or by adjusting a spring with lower spring rates. However, the stiff setup works well when dealing with large bumps and prevents the scooter from crashing. On well-maintained tracks, the suspension feels somewhat bouncy for the comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. When driving at high speeds along straight tracks riders will experience excellent stability. At top speed, the stability doesn’t match that offered by dual stem monsters like the Wolf King GT but rather appears to be the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a steering damper installed. However, the steering damper also makes it so that drivers be forced to work harder on the handlebars when negotiating turns.
The deck is another cause of concern. It’s too small and, due to the lack of deck real estate the riders are forced to put their back foot on the footrest, which isn’t ergonomically designed. The bright side is that the Varla Eagle Pro can make up for a poor stance with a well-laid-out cockpit that is easy on your hands. It’s designed to provide comfort and convenience. Its controls are also ergonomically designed and compliment the clear, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the hefty feeling of the steering as well as the sporty riding posture and the rumbling acceleration The Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride but can also be workout when you’re riding hard.
