The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the manufacturer’s top-selling two-wheeler model, the Eagle One. Varla.Scooter. While the model has largely stayed the same but the Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker and features a larger battery.
Learn about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. The Varla Eagle One Pro comes now available and isn’t like the one it replaced. It’s not only about the larger 52% battery, though that has something to do with it–more on that later.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first beast scooter and it appears there will be a lot of top-quality high-performance scooters this 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 with borrowed specs from beast scooters. It is heavier than the local lightweight weights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ as well as the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. And, it also comes with 11 inches road tires that are typical of beast scooters such as the Storm as well as the Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also remarkable with a far over the norm top speed for a dollar. It also has an exceptional distance per pound as well as excellent braking for every dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive part. This off-road scooter costs about $640 less than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla.Scooter.
Because of the big tires-something that you’re always hoping to hear about-the scooter is able to stand on the ground with a good clearance at over 36 inches. They’re also great for traction but could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy for city trails. However, the stiffness comes in handy when riding off-road. However, you may not be a fan of the narrow deck or uncomfortable kickplate, especially when riding off-road.

It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration isn’t typical of lightweight heavyweight scooters. It is much more powerful. Varla.Scooter. It’s tested with an acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds up to 15 millimeters mark. This is what is expected of veteran heavyweight scooters such as those of Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, and Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. 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.
It is worth noting that the Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means that it also has similar dead zones. You may want to consider finding an angle to anchor your thumb to stabilize it and give it an anchor point when engaged.
We are awestruck by the Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price. The scooter boasts a whopping 40 mph top speed, which is a lot higher than normal when it is compared with other scooters in the same price range. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits a 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at a higher price, only reaches 36 mmh.
However it also faces competition from lower-priced models like that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which manages a top speed that is 43 mph, while the similarly priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class in the weight class, the scooter is in a class of its own. It also can be compared to the original Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is impressive for a lot of things but hill-climbing is one of the most impressive. The electric scooter can go up hills without losing too much energy, and it doesn’t seem to let up when there are heavy riders or low battery situations. During our 60 m hill test at a 10 percent slope it was found that the scooter could maintain an average speed of 17 mph (and more than) until about 10% charge. Varla.Scooter.
The company attributes the impressive hill climbing to the robust dual motors 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 up gradients of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on a scooter which is why the Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter offers a decent 58 km of range tested. It is interesting to note that the only scooter that is within the $400 range of the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a tested range of 41 miles. It beat out other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 mile of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles as well as the Vsett 10+ with 33 miles.
Behind the range is a large capacity, 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s larger and more energy-dense with 21700 cells in the battery. It’s a leap from the predecessor, called the Eagle One, whose battery was valued at 946 wh and came with only 18650 lithium cell. 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 charge time to about four to five hours.
Let’s face it, we wish all scooters had hydraulic brakes. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters with cable brakes are unsafe or insecure when it comes to stopping. Absolutely not. In fact, the cable brakes plus EABS on Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro offer tested braking force that is truly impressive and easy to get right. Varla.Scooter.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from an approximate speed of 15 mph. This performance is in line with that of Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+. In addition, the Varla Eagle’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 cable-actuated levers in the Varla Eagle Pro the way you would do on an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes do not leave anything to be desired when they perform.
The EABS prevents your brakes from locking up. They are adjustable via the P-settings that are displayed on the display. You can set them from 0 to 2 with 0 being an insufficient setting, while 2 is a stronger setting.
The ride quality is acceptable however, it’s not exceptional. One thing they do not mention when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that the primary focus should be on the off-roading measures.
The pneumatic road tires that are tubeless are great for comfort, particularly when driving offroad. The tubeless nature of these tires is ideal to avoid pinch flats caused by rocks. However, if you’re getting the scooter to ride primarily off urban tracks, you’re better off changing to self-sealing, knobby tires. These will instantly increase your traction, preserve your comfort and cut down on maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and a 17 centimeter ground clearance, obstacles in the track will not scrape the deck beneath.
The suspension is stiff. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro would benefit more from adjustable shocks, or by adjusting the spring to lower spring rates. However, the stiff setup is effective when taking on large bumps, and stops the scooter from bottoming out. On well-maintained tracks the suspension can feel somewhat bouncy for comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. At high speeds as well as straight track, users can enjoy a great stability. At top speed the stability isn’t as good as the stability of dual stem beasts like Wolf King GT. Wolf King GT but rather feels 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 will have to push harder on the bar handles when negotiating turns.
The deck is yet another area to be concerned about. It’s too narrow and, due to the lack of usable deck real estate, riders are constantly forced to put their back foot on the footrest that isn’t designed ergonomically. The bright side is the Varla Eagle Pro makes up for its poor posture with a well-laid-out cockpit that is comfortable to use. It is designed for comfort and ease of use. The controls have been also ergonomically designed and complement the large, well-lit 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the heavy feel of the steering, the sporty riding stance and the fast acceleration that the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride. It could also be workout when you’re racing hard.
