Take what you knew about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. Varla’s new Varla Eagle One is out and isn’t like its predecessor. It’s not only about the larger 52% battery, although that could have some significance–more about that in the near future.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first beast scooter, and it seems we’ll see plenty of high-performance, flagship scooters in the coming season. This is in the context of Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the line as an extremely light-weight scooter that borrows its specs taken from the beast scooters. It surpasses the weight of the local lightweight heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, along with the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 lbs. It also features 11 inches road tires, typical of beast scooters such as the Storm or Wolf King GT.

The Varla Eagle Pro’s speed isn’t typical of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is much more powerful. Varla Eagle Electric Scooter. It is tested to have an acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 mmh mark. This is the performance typical of heavyweights from the past like those of Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, along with the Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s only rival in the light-heavyweight category is the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration up between 15 and 15 mph.
The Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means it also has identical dead zones. You might want to find an angle that will anchor your thumb in order to keep it in place and provide it an ideal reference point when engaging.
We are awestruck by our love for the Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price. The scooter manages a whopping forty mph top speed, which is a lot higher than what is considered to be average when compared to others within the same price range. The more expensive Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at the higher cost is only able to reach 36 mmh.
However, it also is competing with lower models, such as the Wolf Warrior X Pro which manages a top speed that is 43 mph as opposed to the similarly priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight, the scooter can be found in a league of its own. It also compares to its predecessor, the Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter is impressive for a lot of things including hill-climbing, which is certainly one of them. This electric scooter will go up steep hills without losing any energy, and it isn’t slowing down when there are heavy riders or poor battery levels. In our 60-meter hill test with a 10% slope, the scooter was able to keep a speed that was around 17 mph (and more than) until about 10% charge. Varla Eagle Electric Scooter.
The company attributes the impressive climb to the sturdy dual motors that are rated at 1000 W each, and a peak power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors deliver an impressive 36 Nm of torque, which is enough to push the scooter upwards up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on a scooter and it’s true that the Varla Eagle Pro scooter gives a good 58 km of range tested. The only scooter within $400 of its Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range that was 41 miles. It beat out other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles distance, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles, along with the Vsett 10+ with 33 miles.
The battery behind the range is a large capacity battery of 60V 24 Ah with 1440 Wh of energy. It is larger and has more energy-dense 21700 battery cells. This is an improvement from the predecessor, called it was the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and had only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries are equipped with smart battery management systems to preserve life. Charging the battery to capacity takes between 8 and 9 hours however, you can get another charger, and cut down the charge time to about 4 to 5 hours.
We wish all scooters had hydraulic brakes. That’s not to say that electric scooters with cable brakes are unsafe or undependable when they need to stop. Absolutely not. In fact the cable brakes and EABS in the Varla Eagle Pro feature tested braking force that is truly impressive and easy to get right. Varla Eagle Electric Scooter.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from an approximate speed of 15 mph. The performance is comparable with that of Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+. The Varla Eagle’s stopping power is superior to those of the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, as well as Nami BURN-E2.
It’s not as fun to squeeze the levers that are powered by cables on the Varla Eagle Pro as you would on an electric scooter with hydraulic brakes, however, the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes do not leave anything to be desired when they perform.
The EABS stops that the brakes aren’t locking up. They are adjustable using the P-settings on the display. They can be adjusted in between zero and two with 0 being an insufficient setting, while 2 is a stronger setting.
Its ride is decent however, it’s not exceptional. The only thing they don’t talk about when advertising all-terrain electric scooters is that the primary focus should be on the off-roading aspects.
The pneumatic road tires that are tubeless are great for comfort, especially when traveling offroad. The tubeless nature of these tires is ideal for evading pinch flats from rocks. If, however, you’re buying the scooter for use mostly on roads, then you’d be better off switching to self-sealing knobby tires. These will instantly increase your traction, retain your comfort, and decrease maintenance. In addition, because of the tires and the 17 centimeter clearance from the ground obstructions on the track won’t scrape the deck beneath.
The suspension feels rigid. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro could have been better off with adjustable shocks or an existing spring with lower spring rates. But the rigid setup is efficient when taking on large bumps, and prevents the scooter from crashing. On well-maintained tracks the suspension is slightly bouncy and not enough for the comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. When driving at high speeds and straight tracks, users will experience excellent stability. At top speed the stability doesn’t match that offered by dual stem monsters such as Wolf King GT. Wolf King GT but rather appears to be the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a damper for steering installed. However, the damper for steering also means that riders will need to exert more force on the bar handles when making turns.
The deck is yet another area of concern. It’s too small, and with this shortage of deck space, riders are constantly forced to rest their back feet on the footrest which isn’t ergonomically designed. One bright spot to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro makes up for its poor posture with an ergonomically laid-out cockpit that is comfortable to hold. It is designed for comfort and user-friendliness. Its controls can be also ergonomically designed and compliment the clear, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the hefty steering feel, the sporty riding stance, and the intense acceleration that the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride but can also be a bit of a workout when you’re riding hard.
