Varla Off Road Scooter
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the manufacturer’s top-selling two-wheeler model, the Eagle One. Varla Off Road Scooter. While the model has largely stayed the same, it’s the Eagle One Pro is more powerful, faster and features a larger battery.
You know what you learned concerning Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. The 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 beast scooter, and it seems there will be a lot of flagship high-performance scooters in the coming season. This is in reference to 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 with specs borrowed of beast-scooters. It surpasses the weight of its light heavyweights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, as well as the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. And, it also features 11 inches road tires, typical of beast scooters like the Storm or Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well over the norm top speed for a dollar. It also has an a remarkable range per pound, and great braking per dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive part. The off-road scooter is priced at about $640 less than the most comparable beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Off Road Scooter.
Because of the big tires-something you always want to hear about-the scooter has great ground clearance of more than 36 inches. They’re also great for traction but could be improved. The suspension is firm and bouncy for city trails, but the stiffness is useful when riding off-road. However, you may not be a fan of 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 much more powerful. Varla Off Road Scooter. It is tested to have an acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds to the 15 millimeters mark. This is the performance typical of heavyweights from the past such as that of the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, as well as it’s Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s only competition in the light heavyweight category includes Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration between 15 and 15 mph.
The Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means it also shares similar dead zones. You may want to consider finding an angle that will anchor your thumb in order to keep it in place and provide it an anchor location when engaging.
We love this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for the price. The scooter boasts a whopping 40 mph top speed, which is a lot higher than average when contrasted with other scooters within the same price range. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at a higher 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, while the similarly priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight, the scooter stands in its weight class and is in a league of its own and only compares to the original Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro scooter is remarkable for many things including hill-climbing, which is certainly one of them. The electric scooter can climb steep hills without losing any power, and isn’t slowing down when there are heavy riders or low battery conditions. In our 60-meter hill test with a 10 percent gradient it was found that the scooter was able to keep a speed of around 17 mph (and over) until about 10% charge. Varla Off Road Scooter.
The company credits the superb hill climbing to the robust dual motors that are rated at 1000 W each, with a maximum power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors generate 36 Nm in torque. This is which is enough to push the scooter through hills of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on the scooter and it’s true that the Varla Eagle Pro scooter offers a decent 58 km of range tested. The only scooter within $400 of that of the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the scale is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range that was 41 miles. It beat 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+ at 33 miles.
Behind the range is a high capacity battery of 60V 24 Ah that has 1440 Wh of power. It’s larger and more efficient with 21700 cell batteries. This is a step up from the predecessor, called it was the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and had only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries have intelligent battery management systems that keep the battery in good condition. 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. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters equipped with cable brakes are unsafe or insecure when they need to stop. Absolutely not. Actually the cable brakes and EABS in Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro feature tested braking power that is truly remarkable and simple to set up. Varla Off Road Scooter.
The e-scooter can stop in only 3 meters from a speed that is 15 mph. This performance is in line with that of Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+. Again, the Varla Eagle’s stopping strength is better than 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 with cable action in the Varla Eagle Pro the way you would do on an electric scooter equipped with hydraulic brakes however, the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes leave nothing to be desired when they perform.
The EABS will stop your brakes from locking up. They are adjustable via the P-settings that are displayed on the display. They can be adjusted between 0 and 2 where 0 is on a weak setting, and 2 is for a high setting.
Its ride is decent however it’s not the best. The only thing they don’t mention 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 comfort, especially when traveling offroad. Their tubeless nature is great for avoiding pinch flats that are caused by rocks. But, if you’re using the scooter to ride primarily off city tracks, then you’re better off changing to self-sealing knobby tires. These would automatically double your traction, retain your comfort, and reduce maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and a 17 centimeter clearance on the ground, obstacles on the track will not scrape the underdeck
The suspension system feels stiff. This Varla Eagle Pro would benefit more from adjustable shocks or adapting the spring to a lower spring rate. But the rigid setup is efficient when handling large bumps and stops the scooter from crashing. When the tracks are well maintained the suspension is slightly bouncy and not enough for comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. In high-speed and straight tracks, riders will enjoy excellent stability. At top speed, the stability doesn’t match the stability from dual-stem beasts such as those on the Wolf King GT but rather feels like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a damper for steering installed. On the downside, the steering damper also makes it so that drivers be forced to work harder on the handlebars when negotiating turns.
The deck is another point to be concerned about. It’s too narrow and due to this lack of usable deck real estate the riders are forced to place the back foot on the footrest that is not ergonomically designed. The bright side is the Varla Eagle Pro makes up for a poor stance with an excellently laid-out and comfortable cockpit that is easy to use. It was designed to be comfortable and ease of use. The controls can be 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 fast acceleration that the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride, but it could also be workout when you’re racing hard.
