Varla Pegasus Range
The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the company’s top-selling two-wheeler model, the Eagle One. Varla Pegasus Range. While the model has largely stayed the same, it’s the Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker, and has a larger battery.
Take what you knew about Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. Varla’s new Varla Eagle One Pro is now available and it’s nothing like the one it replaced. It’s not just about the 52% larger battery, although that could have some significance–more about that in the near future.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first beast scooter and it’s likely that there will be a lot of flagship 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 that borrows its specs from beast scooters. It is heavier than the local light weights Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ as well as the Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. It also has 11 inches of road tires, which is typical of beast scooters like Wolf King GT and the Storm and Wolf King GT.
The Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well above average top speed in dollars, a remarkable performance per pound and excellent brakes per dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive aspect. This off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than the most comparable beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Pegasus Range.
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 better. The suspension is stiff and bouncy on city 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.

The Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration isn’t typical of light heavyweight scooters-it is so much better. Varla Pegasus Range. It has a tested acceleration of 2.1 seconds to the 15 millimeters mark. This is what is expected of veteran heavyweight scooters such as the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds, as well as it’s Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. This is because the Varla Eagle Pro’s sole competition in the light-heavyweight category includes the Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration up from 15 to mph.
The Eagle One Pro uses the same throttle as the NAMI and Wolf King GT, which implies that it also shares the same dead zone. It is possible to locate an angle to anchor your thumb in order to keep it in place and provide it a reference location when engaging.
We’re awestruck with our love for the 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 average when it is compared with other scooters 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, such as the Wolf Warrior X Pro which achieves an top speed that is 43 mph and the comparable Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In terms of weight, the scooter stands in its weight class and is in a class of its own and compares with the original Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro electronic scooter is amazing for a variety of things including hill-climbing, which is certainly one of the best. This electric scooter can go up steep hills without losing any energy, and it does not seem to slow down with heavy riders or in low battery conditions. In our 60-meter hill test with a 10% gradient, the scooter could maintain a speed of 17 mph (and over) till approximately 10% of charge. Varla Pegasus Range.
The manufacturer credits the impeccable hill-climbing ability to the strong twin motors, rated at 1000W each, with a peak power of 2600W. Varla claims that the motors generate the equivalent of 36 Nm or torque sufficient to propel the scooter upwards up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on an electric scooter, and the Varla Eagle Pro electric scooter offers a decent 58 km of range tested. It is interesting to note that the only scooter within $400 from that of the Eagle One Pro that can outdo it in the scale is the Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range of 41 miles. It outran other scooters that cost more, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles, as well as the Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
Behind the range is a high capacity 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s larger and more efficient with 21700 battery cells. This is an improvement from its predecessor, the Eagle One, whose battery was classified at 946 wh, and had only 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries are equipped with intelligent battery management systems that preserve life. Charging the battery to capacity takes 8-9 hrs, however you can purchase a second charger and reduce charge times to around 4 to 5 hours.
Let’s face it, we would prefer that all scooters came with hydraulic brakes. This doesn’t mean that electric scooters with cable brakes aren’t dangerous or insecure when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. Actually, the cable brakes plus EABS in Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro feature proven braking power that is truly impressive and simple to set up. Varla Pegasus Range.
The e-scooter can stop in only 3 meters from the speed at 15 mph. This performance is in line with the Vsett 10, which is 10+. The Varla Eagle Pro’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 like you would with an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes leave nothing to be desired when they perform.
The EABS will stop the brakes from locking. They can be adjusted using the P-settings displayed on the display. You can adjust them from 0 to 2, with 0 being a weak setting, and 2 is a stronger setting.
Its ride is decent, but it’s not great. The caveat they never discuss when promoting all-terrain e-scooters is that they are primarily focused on the off-roading aspects.
The pneumatic road tires with no tube are ideal for comfort, especially when driving offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect to avoid pinch flats caused by rocks. But, if you’re using 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 reduce maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and 17 centimeter clearance on the ground, obstacles on the track won’t cause damage to the deck beneath.
The suspension system feels stiff. It’s a bit stiff. Varla Eagle Pro could have benefited more from adjustable shocks, or by adjusting a spring with less spring force. However, the stiff setup is efficient when dealing with large bumps and stops the scooter from bottoming out. If the track is well maintained the suspension can feel a little too bouncy for the comfort.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. When driving at high speeds as well as straight track, users will experience excellent stability. At top speed the stability does not equal the stability of dual stem beasts such as the Wolf King GT but rather is more like a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a steering damper installed. However, the steering damper also makes it so that drivers have to push harder on the bar handles when making turns.
The deck is another cause of concern. It’s too narrow and, due to the lack of deck space the riders are forced to place the back foot on the footrest that isn’t ergonomically designed. One bright spot to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro compensates for the sloppy stance by providing an excellently laid-out and comfortable cockpit that is easy to use. It is designed for comfort and user-friendliness. The controls are also ergonomically designed and complement the well-readable, large 9 centimeter display.
Overall, between the hefty feel of the steering and the athletic riding stance, and the intense 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.
