Unboxing the Newest Edition To Varla’s Lineup – The Varla Eagle One PRO
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s most popular two-wheeler, which is it’s the Eagle One. While the design has pretty nearly remained the same The Eagle One Pro is more fast, powerful and comes with a bigger battery.
Learn of Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. The Varla Eagle One is here and it’s nothing like the one it replaced. It’s not only about the 52% bigger battery, though that may have some connection to it. More on that later.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first monster scooter and it’s likely that we’ll see a lot of high-performance, flagship 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 fence as a light heavyweight scooter with borrowed specs of beast-scooters. It’s weight is higher than the local light heavyweights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ as well as the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 lbs. Also, it also features 11 inches road tires, which is typical of beast scooters like those of the Storm and Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well above the trend top speed per dollar, a remarkable capacity per pounds, and excellent braking for every dollar. That’s not even the best part. This off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than the most comparable beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11.
Because of the big tires-something that you’re always hoping to hear-the scooter has great ground clearance, with a total of 36 inches. They’re also great for traction but could be more efficient. The suspension feels rigid and bouncy when riding urban trails. But the stiffness comes in handy when traveling off-road. It’s possible that you’ll not enjoy the short deck or its uncomfortably shaped kickplate, particularly off-road.

Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro’s speed is not typical of light heavyweight scooters-it is so much better. It’s tested with an acceleration of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 millimeters per second mark. This is the expected performance of the most seasoned heavyweight scooters such as that of 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. This is because the Varla Eagle Pro’s sole competitor in the light heavyweight class includes the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration up to 15 mph.
It is worth noting that the Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which is why it also shares identical dead zones. It is possible to locate an angle to secure your thumb in order to hold it steady and give it an anchor point when engaging.
We are awestruck by this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed especially considering its price tag. The scooter has a staggering 40 mph top speed that is well above the average when it is compared with other scooters in the same price bracket. The more expensive Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 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 the Wolf Warrior X Pro which can reach a top speed of 43 mph and the similar priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class this scooter has a class of its own . It also can be compared to its predecessor, the Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is impressive for a lot of things and hill-climbing certainly is one of the most impressive. The electric scooter will go up hill without losing much energy, and it doesn’t appear to slow down in high-powered riders or battery levels. In our 60-meter hill test , with a 10% slope, the scooter could maintain an average speed that was around 17 mph (and over) until about 10% charge.
The manufacturer attributes the exemplary hill-climbing ability to the strong two motors, which are rated at 1,000 W each, and the peak power reaching 2600W. Varla claims that the motors generate 336 Nm of torque, enough to propel the scooter on hills that can be up to 35 degrees.
There is nothing better than good mileage on a scooter, and the Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter has a good 58 km of range tested. The only scooter within $400 of the Eagle One Pro that can surpass it in terms of scale is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range of 41 miles. It outperformed other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles reach, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles, as well as the Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
Behind the range is a huge capacity, 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s bigger and more energy-dense with 21700 cell batteries. This is a significant improvement from its predecessor, it was the Eagle One, whose battery was rated at 946 wh and only came with 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries incorporate smart battery management systems to maintain the battery’s lifespan. The process of charging the battery to its capacity takes between 8 and 9 hours. However, you can purchase an additional charger to reduce charging time to 4-5 hours.
Let’s face the facts: we wish all scooters had hydraulic brakes. It’s not that electric scooters with cable brakes aren’t dangerous or insecure when it comes to stopping. Absolutely not. In fact the cable brakes along with EABS that are on the Varla Eagle Pro feature test-driven braking capability that is truly impressive and easy to get right.
The e-scooter is stopped in 3 meters from the speed that is 15 mph. This performance is in line with that of the Vsett 10+. In addition, the Varla Eagle Pro’s stopping strength is better than it’s competitors, including the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E and Nami BURN-E2.
You may not enjoy squeezing the levers that are powered by cables of the Varla Eagle Pro similar to an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s electronic disc brakes leave nothing to be desired when it comes to performance.
The EABS will stop the brakes from locking up. They are adjustable using the P-settings that are displayed on the display. You can adjust them between 0 and 2 where 0 indicates the weak setting, and 2 refers to a strong setting.
The ride is comfortable However, it’s not outstanding. The caveat they never talk about when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that priority falls on the off-roading aspects.
The pneumatic road tires that are tubeless are excellent for ease of use, particularly when taking offroad routes. The tubeless nature of these tires is ideal for avoiding pinch flats that are caused by rocks. If, however, you’re buying the scooter to use primarily on streets, then you’d be better off switching to self-sealing knobby tires. They’ll automatically increase the speed of your ride, preserve your comfort, and lower maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and a 17 centimeter clearance on the ground obstacles on the track aren’t likely to scratch the underdeck
The suspension feels hard. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro would have been better off with adjustable shocks or an adjustable spring that has a lower spring rate. But the rigid setup can be effective when taking on large bumps, and helps prevent the scooter from falling off. On well-maintained tracks the suspension is rather bouncy, which is not ideal for comfortable riding.
It is also equipped with a steering damper. Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. In high-speed along straight tracks users can enjoy a great stability. When riding at top speed, the stability does not match that of dual stem machines like Wolf King GT. Wolf King GT but rather seems like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a steering damper installed. On the flip side, the steering damper also implies that the riders need to exert more force on the handlebars when turning.
The deck is another cause to be concerned about. It’s too small, and with this shortage of available deck space, the riders are always forced to place the back foot on the footrest , which isn’t ergonomically designed. The only positive thing is the Varla Eagle Pro makes up for a unflattering stance with a nicely laid-out cockpit that is comfortable to use. It’s designed for comfort and convenience. Controls are also ergonomically designed to complement the highly-readable, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the strong feel of the steering, the sporty riding stance and the rumbling acceleration The Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride but could also be a workout when you’re racing hard.
What Makes the Pro Version Different From Eagle One
There were significant upgrades that Varla added to the Eagle One to get the Pro. Below are a few of the major differences:
