You know what you learned regarding Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. It’s the Varla Eagle One Pro is out and isn’t like the one it replaced. It’s not only about the 52% bigger battery, even though it has some connection to it. More on that later.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first monster scooter, and it seems we’ll see a lot of flagship high-performance scooters this year. This is a an allusion to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the fence as a light heavyweight scooter with borrowed specs from beast scooters. It surpasses the weight of the local lightweight heavyweights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ as well as the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs.

Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro’s speed isn’t typical of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is far superior. Varla Electric Scooter. It’s tested with an acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds to the 15 millimeters mark. This is the performance expected of veteran heavyweight scooters such as that of the 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 class is that of the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds acceleration from 15 to mph.
The Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which means it also has identical dead zones. You might want to find an angle to anchor your thumb to keep it in place and provide it a reference location when engaged.
We are awestruck by this Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price tag. The scooter boasts a whopping forty mph top speed, which is well above what is considered to be average when it is compared 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 an expensive price has a lower speed of 36 millimeters.
However it also faces competition from lower-priced models, such as those of Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves a top speed that is 43 mph, while the similar priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class, the scooter is in a class of its own. It also compares to its predecessor, the Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is amazing for a variety of things, and hill-climbing is definitely one of them. This electric scooter can go up steep hills without losing any energy, and it isn’t slowing down on heavy riders or low battery situations. When we conducted our 60-meter hill test at a 10 percent slope and a 10% gradient, the scooter could maintain an average speed of 17 mph (and over) up to approximately 10% of charge. Varla Electric Scooter.
The manufacturer credits the impeccable climb to the sturdy dual motors that are rated at 1000 W each, with a peak power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors generate 36 Nm in torque. This is sufficient to propel the scooter through hills of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats the good miles on the scooter which is why this Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter has a reasonable 58 km of range tested. The only scooter that is within the $400 range of its Eagle One Pro that can beat it on the distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, which has a range tested 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, as well as the Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
The battery behind the range is a large capacity 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It is larger and has more energy-dense 21700 cells in the battery. This is a step up from the predecessor, called the Eagle One, whose battery was rated at 946 wh and came with only 18650 lithium cell. Both batteries integrate intelligent battery management systems that preserve life. Charge the battery up to capacity takes 8-9 hrs, but you can secure an additional charger to reduce charge time to about 4-5 hours.
Let’s face it; we wish all scooters had hydraulic brakes. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters with cable brakes aren’t dangerous or unreliable when they need to stop. Absolutely not. Actually the cable brakes and EABS of the Varla Eagle Pro offer proven braking power that is truly impressive and simple to set up. Varla Electric Scooter.
The e-scooter can stop in only 3 meters from a speed at 15 mph. This performance is in line with that of Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+. Again, the Varla Eagle’s stopping strength is better than those of the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, as well as Nami BURN-E2.
You may not enjoy squeezing the levers with cable action in the Varla Eagle Pro the way you would do on an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s disc brakes don’t leave much to be desired when they perform.
The EABS will stop that the brakes aren’t locking. They can be adjusted using the P-settings on the display. You can set them between 0 and 2, which means 0 is a weak setting, and 2 is a stronger setting.
The ride quality is good however, it’s not exceptional. The caveat they never discuss when advertising all-terrain electric scooters is that priority falls on the off-roading aspects.
The pneumatic road tires with no tube are ideal for comfort, especially when traveling offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect for evading pinch flats from rocks. But, if you’re using the scooter to ride primarily off urban tracks, you’d be better off switching to self-sealing, knobby tires. These will instantly increase your traction, retain your comfort, and reduce maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and a 17 centimeter clearance from the ground, obstacles on the track will not cause damage to the underdeck
The suspension is rigid. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro would benefit more from adjustable shocks or the spring to lower spring rates. However, the stiff setup works well when taking on large bumps, and keeps the scooter from bottoming out. On well-maintained tracks, the suspension feels slightly bouncy and not enough for the comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. At high speeds along straight tracks riders will experience excellent stability. At top speed, the stability does not equal that of dual stem beasts such as those on the Wolf King GT but rather is more like a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn equipped with a steering damper. On the downside, the damper on the 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 is too short and, due to the lack of deck space the riders are forced to rest their back feet on the footrest which isn’t designed ergonomically. The bright side to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro compensates for its poor posture with an excellently laid-out and comfortable cockpit that is easy to hold. It’s designed to provide comfort and user-friendliness. Controls can be also ergonomically designed and compliment the large, well-lit 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the heavy feeling of the steering as well as the sporty riding posture, and the intense acceleration, the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride but can also be a bit of a workout when you’re riding hard.
