Varla Eagle One Pro Steering Damper
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s most popular two-wheeler, which is called the Eagle One. Varla Eagle One Pro Steering Damper. Although the style has remained the same, the Eagle One Pro is more efficient, more powerful, and has a larger battery.
Take what you knew about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro is here and it’s nothing like its predecessor. It’s not just about the 52% bigger battery, although that could have some connection to it. More on that to come.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first beast scooter and it’s likely that we’ll see a lot of top-quality high-performance scooters in the coming season. This is in an allusion 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 that borrows its specs of beast-scooters. It surpasses the weight of the local lightweight heavyweights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, and Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. Additionally, it also has 11 inches of road tires that are typical of beast scooters such as Storm and Wolf King GT. Storm or Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also amazing with a way above average top speed per dollar, exceptional range per pound, as well as excellent brakes per dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive part. This off-road scooter is priced at about $640 less than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Eagle One Pro Steering Damper.
Due to the huge tires-something that you’re always hoping to hear about-the scooter offers a great ground clearance, with a total of 36 inches. They’re also great for traction however they could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy for urban trails, but the stiffness can be useful when traveling off-road. You might not like the narrow deck or uncomfortably shaped kickplate, particularly off-road.

Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro’s speed is not typical of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is so much better. Varla Eagle One Pro Steering Damper. It has a tested acceleration of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 mmh mark. This is the performance typical of heavyweights from the past like that of the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, as well as the Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s only competition in the light-heavyweight category includes Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration, accelerating to 15 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 shares identical dead zones. You might want to find an angle to anchor your thumb in order to keep it in place and provide it an anchor point when engaging.
We are awestruck by this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price. The scooter manages a whopping forty mph top speed, which is well above normal when compared to others in the same price range. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at an expensive price has a lower speed of 36 millimeters.
However, it also is competing with lower models like that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves a top speed at 43 mph as opposed to the similarly priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class, the scooter is in a class of its own. It also can be compared to the original Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is remarkable for many things including hill-climbing, which is certainly one of the most impressive. This electric scooter can go up steep hills without losing any energy, and it does not seem to slow down on heavy riders or poor battery levels. During our 60 m hill test at a 10% slope it was found that the scooter was able to maintain a speed of 17 mph (and more than) up to around 10% charge. Varla Eagle One Pro Steering Damper.
The company credits the superb hill-climbing ability to the strong twin motors, rated at 1000 W each, and a peak power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors deliver the equivalent of 36 Nm or torque which is enough to push the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on an electric scooter and it’s true that the Varla Eagle One Pro scooter gives a good distance of 58 kilometers in its tested range. Interestingly, the only scooter less than $400 from its Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the scale is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, which has a range tested to 41 miles. It beat out other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles, and Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
The battery behind the range is a large capacity battery of 60V 24 Ah with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s larger and more efficient with 21700 cells in the battery. This is a step up from the predecessor, called the Eagle One, whose battery was valued at 946 wh and had only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries have smart battery management systems to preserve life. The process of charging the battery to its capacity takes 8-9 hrs, however, you can get an additional charger to reduce charge times to around 4 to 5 hours.
Let’s face it, we would like to see all scooters have hydraulic brakes. That’s not to say that electric scooters equipped with cable brakes are dangerous or insecure when it comes to stopping. Absolutely not. Actually, the cable brakes plus EABS of Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro have a tested braking power that is truly impressive and easy to get right. Varla Eagle One Pro Steering Damper.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from a speed that is 15 mph. This is in line with that of Vsett 10+. Vsett 10-plus. The Varla Eagle’s stopping strength is better than those of 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 that are on the Varla Eagle Pro the way you would do on an electric scooter with hydraulic brakes, however, the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes leave nothing in the dust when it comes to performance.
The EABS stops your brakes from locking. They are adjustable using the P-settings on the display. They can be adjusted from 0 to 2, which means 0 is an insufficient setting, while 2 refers to a strong setting.
The ride quality is acceptable however, it’s not exceptional. One thing they do not talk about when advertising all-terrain electric scooters is that the primary focus should be on off-roading features.
The pneumatic road tires that are tubeless are excellent for comfort, especially when traveling offroad. The tubeless nature of these tires is ideal for evading pinch flats from rocks. If, however, you’re buying the scooter to use primarily on roads, then it’s better to switch to self-sealing, tubeless knobby tires. They will automatically increase your traction, preserve your comfort, and decrease maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and the 17 centimeter clearance on the ground, obstacles on the track will not scratch the deck beneath.
The suspension feels rigid. The Varla Eagle Pro could have been better off with adjustable shocks or adapting a spring with lower spring rates. But the rigid setup works well when taking on large bumps, and prevents the scooter from falling off. When the tracks are well maintained, the suspension feels somewhat bouncy for comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with an inbuilt steering damper. At high speeds along straight tracks riders will experience excellent stability. At top speed, the stability isn’t as good as the stability of dual stem beasts such as those on the Wolf King GT but rather is more like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a damper for steering installed. The downside is that the damper for steering also means that riders will need to exert more force on the bar handles when trying to negotiate turns.
The deck is yet another area to be concerned about. It’s too small and due to this lack of deck space the riders are forced to rest their back feet on the footrest that is not ergonomically designed. One bright spot to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro compensates for the sloppy stance by providing an ergonomically laid-out cockpit that is comfortable to hold. It’s designed to provide comfort and ease of use. The controls are also ergonomically designed and compliment the well-readable, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the heavy feel of the steering as well as the sporty riding posture and the fast acceleration, the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride, but it could also be an exercise when you’re on the road for a long time.
