The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s top-selling two-wheeler model, called the Eagle One. Varla One. The model has largely stayed the same however, it’s the Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker and features a larger battery.
You know what you learned about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro is now available and isn’t like its predecessor. And it’s not just about the larger 52% battery, even though it has some significance–more about that in the near future.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first monster scooter and it’s likely that there will be a lot of flagship high-performance scooters this year. This is a reference to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the line as a light heavyweight scooter with specs borrowed taken from the beast scooters. It is heavier than its light heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ along with the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 lbs. It also has 11 inches of road tires, typical of beast scooters such as Wolf King GT and the Storm as well as the Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also amazing with a way above average top speed for a dollar. It also has an a remarkable performance per pound and excellent braking for every dollar. It’s not even the greatest aspect. The off-road scooter is priced at about $640 less than the most comparable beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla One.
Due to the huge tires-something you always want to hear about-the scooter has great ground clearance, with a total of 36 inches. They’re also excellent for traction, but could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy for urban trails, but the stiffness can be useful when riding off-road. However, you may not be a fan of the shorter deck or the uncomfortably shaped kickplate, particularly off-road.

Pros And Cons

Short Deck Leads to Riding Fatigue
The Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration is not typical of lightweight heavyweight scooters. It is much more powerful. Varla One. It has a tested speed of 2.1 seconds up to 15 millimeters mark. This is the performance you would expect from heavyweights with a long history such as that of the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds and it’s Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s only competition in the light-heavyweight category will be the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration to 15 mph.
It is worth noting that the Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which implies that it also shares similar dead zones. It is possible to locate an angle to anchor your thumb in order to stabilize it and give it an anchor location when engaging.
We love the Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price. The scooter has a staggering 40 mph top speed, which is well above what is considered to be average when compared to others that are in the same price bracket. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at a higher price is only able to reach 36 mmh.
However it also has competition from cheaper models like that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves a top speed at 43 mph, while the comparable Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class in the weight class, the scooter can be found in a league of its own. It also can be compared to the original Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro scooter is amazing for a variety of things including hill-climbing, which is certainly one of the most impressive. The electric scooter will go up hills without losing too much energy, and it doesn’t seem to let up on heavy riders or low battery situations. In our 60-meter hill climb at 10 percent gradient and a 10% gradient, the scooter was able to keep a speed of around 17 mph (and over) until about 10% charge. Varla One.
The company credits the superb hill climbing to the robust twin motors, rated at 1000W each, and a peak power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors produce 36 Nm of torque, sufficient to propel the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
There is nothing better than good mileage on a scooter and the Varla Eagle Pro scooter offers a decent 58 kilometers of tested range. It is interesting to note that the only scooter within $400 from the Eagle One Pro that can beat it on the scale is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, which has a range tested of 41 miles. It outran other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles distance, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles as well as the Vsett 10+ with 33 miles.
Behind the range lies a high capacity battery of 60V 24 Ah with 1440 Wh of energy. It is larger and has more energy-dense 21700 cell batteries. This is a step up from the predecessor, called that of the Eagle One, whose battery was rated at 946 wh and only came with 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries integrate smart battery management systems to ensure that the battery’s life is not compromised. Charge the battery up to capacity can take between 8 and 9 hours, but you can secure another charger, and cut down the charge time to about four to five hours.
We wish all scooters had hydraulic brakes. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters equipped with cable brakes are unsafe or insecure when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. In fact the cable brakes and EABS on Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro feature proven braking power that is truly remarkable and very easy to use. Varla One.
The electric scooter stops in 3 meters from an approximate speed that is 15 mph. This performance is in line with that of Vsett 10+. Vsett 10-plus. In addition, the Varla Eagle’s stopping power is superior to Kaabo Wolf King, the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E and Nami BURN-E2.
It’s not as fun to squeeze the cable-actuated levers on the Varla Eagle Pro the way you would do on an electric scooter equipped with hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes do not leave anything to be desired when it comes to performance.
The EABS stops that the brakes aren’t locking up. They are adjustable via the P-settings on the display. They can be adjusted from 0 to 2, where 0 is on an insufficient setting, while 2 refers to a strong setting.
The ride quality is acceptable, but it’s not great. The only thing they don’t discuss when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that the primary focus should be on off-roading features.
The tubeless pneumatic road tires are great for comfort, particularly when riding offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for evading pinch flats from rocks. If, however, you’re buying the scooter to ride primarily off city tracks, then it’s better to switch to self-sealing knobby tires. These would automatically double the traction of your scooter, maintain your comfort, and decrease maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and 17 centimeter clearance on the ground obstructions on the track won’t cause damage to the underdeck
The suspension system feels hard. This Varla Eagle Pro would benefit more from adjustable shocks or adapting the spring to a lower spring rate. But the rigid setup is effective when dealing with large bumps and stops the scooter from falling off. When the tracks are well maintained the suspension can feel a little too bouncy for comfort.
It is also equipped with a steering damper. Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. When driving at high speeds along straight tracks users will enjoy excellent stability. At top speed the stability isn’t as good as the stability offered by dual stem monsters such as the Wolf King GT but rather appears to be a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a steering damper installed. The downside is that the damper on the steering also implies that the riders will have to push harder on the handlebars when trying to negotiate turns.
The deck is yet another area to be concerned about. It is too short and, due to the lack of usable deck real estate, riders are constantly forced to place the back foot on the footrest that isn’t ergonomically designed. The bright side is the Varla Eagle Pro compensates for a poor stance with a well-laid-out cockpit that is easy to use. It’s designed to provide comfort and user-friendliness. Its controls have been also ergonomically designed and compliment the clear, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, with the heavy steering feel as well as the sporty riding posture, and the intense acceleration, the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride, but it can also be a bit of a workout when you’re racing hard.
