The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the top-selling two-wheeler model, the Eagle One. Varlar. While the style has remained the same however, the Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker and comes with a bigger battery.
You know what you learned regarding Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro comes here, and it is nothing like the one it replaced. It’s not only about the 52% bigger 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 we’ll see plenty of flagship high-performance scooters in the coming season. This is a reference to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the fence as it’s a light weight scooter with specs borrowed of beast-scooters. It surpasses the weight of its light heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, and Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79 pounds. It also has 11 inches of road tires, which is typical of beast scooters such as Storm and Wolf King GT. Storm and Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well over the norm top speed in dollars, an impressive distance per pound as well as excellent braking per dollar. It’s not even the greatest part. The off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than the most comparable beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varlar.
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 excellent for traction, but could be better. The suspension is stiff and bouncy when riding city trails. However, the stiffness comes in handy when traveling off-road. You might not like the narrow deck or uncomfortable kickplate, especially when riding off-road.

The Varla Eagle Pro’s speed isn’t typical of light heavyweight scooters-it is much more powerful. Varlar. It has a tested acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds up to 15 mmh mark. This is what is typical of heavyweights from the past such as those of Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, and the Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s only rival in the light heavyweight class will be that of 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 identical dead zones. You might want to find an angle to anchor your thumb to keep it in place and provide it an anchor location when engaged.
We are awestruck by this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price tag. The scooter has a staggering forty mph top speed, which is much higher than the what is considered to be average when compared to others that are in the same price bracket. The more expensive Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at the higher cost has a lower speed of 36 millimeters.
However it also faces competition from lower-priced models, such as the Wolf Warrior X Pro which has an top speed of 43 mph, while the similar priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight it is a scooter stands in its weight class and is in a class of its own. It also can be compared to its predecessor, the Dualtron Thunder.
The 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 energy, and it doesn’t seem to let up on heavy riders or low battery situations. During our 60 m hill test at a 10 percent gradient and a 10% gradient, the scooter could maintain a speed of 17 mph (and over) up to about 10% charge. Varlar.
The company attributes the impressive hill-climbing ability to the strong twin motors, rated at 1000W each, and a peak power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors generate 36 Nm in torque. This is enough to push the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on the scooter which is why this Varla Eagle One Pro scooter gives a good 58 km of range tested. It is interesting to note that the only scooter within $400 of the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the range is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, which has a range tested to 41 miles. It beat other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles as well as the Vsett 10+ with 33 miles.
The battery behind the range lies a high capacity 60V 24 Ah battery that has 1440 Wh of power. It is larger and more efficient with 21700 cells in the battery. This is an improvement from its predecessor, that of the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and had only 18650 lithium cell. Both batteries have intelligent battery management systems that preserve life. Charging the battery to capacity can take between 8 and 9 hours, however you can purchase a second charger and reduce charging time to four to five hours.
Let’s face it; we wish all scooters had hydraulic brakes. However, that doesn’t mean electric scooters that have cable brakes aren’t dangerous or unreliable when they need to stop. Absolutely not. Actually the cable brakes as well as EABS on Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro have a proven braking power that is truly impressive and very easy to use. Varlar.
The e-scooter can stop in only 3 meters from an approximate speed of 15 mph. This performance is in line with that of Vsett 10+. Vsett 10-plus. The Varla Eagle’s stopping power outdoes 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 levers that are powered by cables in the Varla Eagle Pro like you would with an electric scooter equipped with hydraulic brakes however, the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes don’t leave much to be desired when it comes to performance.
The EABS will stop that the brakes aren’t locking up. They are adjustable using the P-settings displayed on the display. You can set them from 0 to 2 where 0 is on a weak setting, and 2 is for a high setting.
Its ride is decent however, it’s not exceptional. One thing they do not talk about when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that priority falls on the off-roading aspects.
The pneumatic road tires that are tubeless are ideal for comfort, particularly when riding offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for avoiding pinch flats that are caused by rocks. But, if you’re using the scooter for use mostly on city tracks, then you’d be better off switching to self-sealing, knobby tires. These will instantly increase your traction, preserve your comfort and cut down on maintenance. Additionally, due to the tires and the 17 centimeter ground clearance, obstacles on the track will not scratch the deck beneath.
The suspension feels stiff. This Varla Eagle Pro would have been better off with adjustable shocks, or by adjusting the spring to a lower spring rate. But the rigid setup is effective when taking on large bumps, and prevents the scooter from falling off. When the tracks are well maintained the suspension can feel somewhat bouncy for the comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. When driving at high speeds and straight tracks, riders can enjoy a great stability. At top speed, the stability doesn’t match that offered by dual stem monsters such as the Wolf King GT but rather is more like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a steering damper installed. However, the damper on the steering also makes it so that drivers will have to push harder on the handlebars when trying to negotiate turns.
The deck is yet another area to be concerned about. It’s too small, and with this shortage of deck real estate it is a constant struggle for riders to rest their back feet on the footrest which isn’t designed ergonomically. The only bright side to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro makes up for the sloppy stance by providing a well-laid-out cockpit that is comfortable to hold. It’s designed to provide comfort and ease of use. Its controls can be also ergonomically designed and compliment the well-readable, large 9 centimeter screen.
Overall, between the heavy feel of the steering and the athletic riding stance and the fast acceleration, the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride. It can also be quite workout when you’re on the road for a long time.
