Varla Eagle 1 Electric Scooter
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s top-selling two-wheeler model, the Eagle One. Varla Eagle 1 Electric Scooter. Although the design has pretty much stayed the same but the Eagle One Pro is more efficient, more powerful and comes with a bigger battery.
You know what you learned regarding Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. Varla’s new Varla Eagle One Pro is now available, and it is nothing like its predecessor. And it’s not just about the 52% bigger 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 appears there will be a lot of flagship high-performance scooters this season. 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 a light heavyweight scooter with specs borrowed taken from the beast scooters. It surpasses the weight of resident light heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, along with the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 pounds. It also comes with 11 inches road tires, typical of beast scooters like the Storm and Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well above average top speed per dollar, a remarkable distance per pound and excellent braking for every dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive part. This off-road scooter costs about $640 less than the closest competing beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Eagle 1 Electric Scooter.
Due to the huge tires-something you always want to hear about-the scooter offers a great ground clearance at over 36 inches. They are also excellent for traction, however they could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy on urban trails, but the stiffness comes in handy when traveling off-road. But you might not like the narrow deck or uncomfortable kickplate, especially when riding off-road.

It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s speed does not match that of light heavyweight scooters-it is much more powerful. Varla Eagle 1 Electric Scooter. It is tested to have an acceleration of 2.1 seconds to the 15 mmh mark. This is the speed that’s typical of heavyweights from the past 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. The Varla Eagle Pro’s sole competition in the light-heavyweight category will be Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration, accelerating from 15 to mph.
Eagle One Pro Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means it also has the same dead zone. You might want to find an angle to anchor your thumb in order to keep it in place and provide it an ideal reference point when engaged.
We are awestruck by our love for the Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for the price. The scooter has a staggering 40 mph top speed, which is well above average when it is compared with other scooters within the same price range. The more expensive Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits a 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at a higher price is only able to reach 36 mmh.
However it also faces competition from lower-priced models, such as that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves a top speed that is 43 mph as opposed to the comparable Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight in the weight class, the scooter stands in its weight class and is in a league of its own and only can be compared with the original Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro scooter is remarkable for many things, and hill-climbing is definitely one of the best. This electric scooter can climb the hills without losing energy, and it does not seem to slow down with heavy riders or in low battery situations. When we conducted our 60-meter hill test with a 10% slope, the scooter could maintain the speed of around 17 mph (and over) up to around 10% charge. Varla Eagle 1 Electric Scooter.
The manufacturer credits the impeccable hill-climbing ability to the strong dual motors that are rated at 1000 W each, with a peak power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors generate the equivalent of 36 Nm or torque enough to propel the scooter upwards up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on a scooter and this Varla Eagle Pro scooter gives a good 58 km of range tested. The only scooter within $400 of the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range of 41 miles. It beat out other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile distance, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles and Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
Behind the range lies a high capacity 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It is larger and has more energy-dense 21700 cells in the battery. This is a step up from the predecessor, called that of the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and only came with 18650 lithium cell. Both batteries integrate smart battery management systems to keep the battery in good condition. The process of charging the battery to its 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 prefer that all scooters came with hydraulic brakes. That’s not to say that electric scooters with cable brakes are dangerous or unreliable when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. Actually the cable brakes and EABS in the Varla Eagle Pro have a tested braking force that is truly impressive and simple to set up. Varla Eagle 1 Electric Scooter.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from the speed of 15 mph. The performance is comparable with that of the Vsett 10, which is 10+. Again, the Varla Eagle’s stopping strength is better than Kaabo Wolf King, the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, as well as Nami BURN-E2.
It’s possible that you don’t like squeezing the levers that are powered by cables that are on the Varla Eagle Pro as you would on an electric scooter with hydraulic brakes, however, the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes leave nothing to be desired when it comes to performance.
The EABS stops your brakes from locking up. They can be adjusted using the P-settings that are displayed on the display. They can be adjusted in between zero and two which means 0 is the weak setting and 2 refers to a strong setting.
Its ride is decent, but it’s not great. The caveat they never discuss when promoting all-terrain e-scooters is that priority falls on the off-roading measures.
The pneumatic road tires with no tube are great for comfort, particularly when driving offroad. Their tubeless nature is great to avoid pinch flats caused by rocks. If, however, you’re buying the scooter to ride primarily off urban tracks, it’s better to switch to self-sealing, knobby tires. They will automatically increase the traction of your scooter, maintain your comfort and cut down on maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and a 17 centimeter clearance on the ground obstacles on the track won’t scratch the underdeck
The suspension is stiff. This Varla Eagle Pro would have benefited more from adjustable shocks, or by adjusting a spring with less spring force. However, the stiff setup is effective when dealing with large bumps and stops the scooter from crashing. On well-maintained tracks the suspension is a little too bouncy for ease of use.
It is also equipped with a steering damper. Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. At high speeds as well as straight track, riders will experience excellent stability. At top speed the stability does not equal that from dual-stem beasts such as Wolf King GT. Wolf King GT but rather is more like a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn equipped with a steering damper. The downside is that the damper on the steering also means that riders be forced to work harder on the bar handles when trying to negotiate turns.
The deck is another point to be concerned about. It’s too small, and with this shortage of deck space it is a constant struggle for riders to put their back foot on the footrest, which isn’t ergonomically designed. The bright side to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro makes up for a poor stance with a well-laid-out cockpit that is easy to hold. It was designed to be comfortable and ease of use. Its controls are also ergonomically designed and compliment the large, well-lit 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the heavy feeling of the steering, the sporty riding stance, and the intense acceleration The Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride, but it could also be a bit of a workout when you’re riding hard.
