Varla Eagle One Pro Range Test And Update!
Here is my range test for the Varla Eagle One Pro electric scooter. The test was conducted in the max speed, dual motor mode. I also have a couple updates on the scooter, plus there is plenty of ride footage to enjoy.
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s best-selling two-wheeler, known as the Eagle One. While the design has pretty nearly remained the same The Eagle One Pro is more powerful, faster and features a bigger battery.
Take what you knew concerning Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. The Varla Eagle One Pro is here and isn’t like its predecessor. And it’s not just about the 52% bigger battery, though that has something to do with it. More on that later.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first big scooter, and it seems we’ll see plenty of flagship high-performance scooters this year. This is a an allusion 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 featuring specs borrowed taken from the beast scooters. It is heavier than regular light heavyweights like the Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, and Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. Additionally, it also features 11 inches roads tires, which are common on beast scooters such as those of the Storm and Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also amazing with a way above trend top speed per dollar, outstanding capacity per pounds, and excellent brakes per dollar. This isn’t the only great aspect. The off-road scooter is priced at about $640 less than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11.
With the massive tires-something you’ve always wanted to hear about-the scooter has a fantastic ground clearance, with a total of 36 inches. They’re also good for traction but could be better. The suspension feels rigid and bouncy for urban trails. But the stiffness is useful when taking off-road trails. However, you may not be a fan of the narrow deck or uncomfortable kickplate, especially off-road.

Pros And Cons

Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration does not match that of lightweight heavyweight scooters. It is significantly better. It is tested to have an speed of 2.1 seconds and is able to reach the 15 mmh mark. This is the speed that’s expected of veteran heavyweight scooters like that of the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds in addition to Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. This is because the Varla Eagle Pro’s only competition in the light-heavyweight category is the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration time to 15 mph.
Eagle One Pro Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which is why it also shares an identical dead zone. You might want to find an angle to secure your thumb in order to stabilize it and give it an accurate reference location when engaging.
We love this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed especially considering the price. The scooter can reach a whopping forty mph top speed which is well above the average when compared to others in the same price bracket. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at the higher cost just reaches 36 mmh.
However it also is up against cheaper models, such as those of Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves an top speed of 43 mph, while the similarly priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class in the weight class, the scooter stands in its weight class and is in a class of its own and only is comparable to Dualtron Thunder. Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is amazing for many things, and hill-climbing is definitely one of them. The electric scooter will climb up the hills without losing powerand does not appear to slow down in the weight of riders or in low battery charges. When we conducted our 60-meter hill test at a 10% slope it was found that the scooter maintained the speed that was about 17 mph (and over) till about 10% charge.
The manufacturer credits the impeccable climbing ability to the durable dual motors rated at 1000 W each, with an output of two thousand watts. Varla claims that the motors produce the equivalent of 36 Nm of torque, sufficient to push the scooter upwards up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on an scooter and this Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter offers a decent 58 kilometers of tested range. Interestingly, the only scooter priced within $400 of that of the Eagle One Pro that can compete with it in the spectrum is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a tested range of 41 miles. It outperformed other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles, along with the Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
The battery behind the range is a huge capacity battery of 60V 24 Ah with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s bigger and more dense with 21700 cell batteries. This is a step up from its predecessor, which was called the Eagle One, whose battery was assessed at 946 watts and had only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries have smart battery management systems to maintain the battery’s lifespan. Charge the battery up to capacity takes between 8 and 9 hours. However, you can purchase a second charger and reduce charge time to about 4-5 hours.
We want all scooters to have hydraulic brakes. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters with cable brakes aren’t dangerous or unreliable when they need to stop. Absolutely not. In fact the cable brakes as well as EABS on the Varla Eagle Pro are equipped with proven braking power that is truly remarkable and easy to get right.
The e-scooter can stop in only 3 meters from an approximate speed which is around 15 mph. This performance is in line with Vsett 10+. Vsett 10, which is 10+. In addition, the Varla Eagle Pro’s stopping power is superior to 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 on the Varla Eagle Pro similar to an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s electronic disc brakes aren’t leaving anything in the dust when it comes to performance.
The EABS will stop the brakes from locking up. They can be adjusted using the P-settings displayed on the display. You can change them in between zero and two where 0 indicates the weak setting, and 2 refers to a powerful setting.
The ride is comfortable but not exceptional. The one thing they don’t talk about when advocating all-terrain e-scooters that priority falls on the off-roading features.
The tubeless pneumatic road tire are great for ease of use, particularly when traveling offroad. The tubeless nature of these tires is ideal for avoiding pinch flats caused by rocks. However, if your goal is to use the scooter for use mostly on urban tracks, you’d better switch to self-sealing, knobby tires. These would automatically double the speed of your ride, preserve your comfort and cut down on maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and 17 centimeter of ground clearance obstructions on the track won’t scratch the deck beneath.
The suspension feels rigid. This Varla Eagle Pro would benefit more from adjustable shocks, or by adjusting a spring with a lower rate. But the rigid setup is effective when dealing with large bumps and prevents the scooter from sliding down. If the track is well-maintained, the suspension feels rather bouncy, which is not ideal for the comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. With high speeds and straight tracks, riders will enjoy excellent stability. When riding at top speed, the stability isn’t as good as dual stem monsters like that of the Wolf King GT but rather appears to be the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn fitted with a steering damper. On the flip side, the steering damper also means that riders be forced to work harder on the handlebars when trying to negotiate turns.
The deck is another cause to be concerned about. It’s too narrow, and with the shortage of space on the deck, the riders are always being forced to put their back feet on the footrest that isn’t designed ergonomically. The only bright side is the Varla Eagle Pro can make up for a unflattering stance with a nicely laid-out cockpit that is comfortable to hold. It was designed to be comfortable and convenience. They are also ergonomically designed and complement the highly-readable, large 9 centimeter screen.
Overall, between the strong feeling of the steering, the sporty riding stance, and the intense acceleration that the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride, but it could also be quite a workout when you’re on the road for a long time.
