The Eagle One Pro is an upgraded version of the best-selling two-wheeler, called the Eagle One. Varla Review. Although the style has remained the same however, The Eagle One Pro is more robust, quicker and comes with a bigger battery pack.
Take what you knew concerning Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. The Varla Eagle One Pro is out and it’s nothing like its predecessor. It’s not only about the 52% bigger battery, though that has something to do with it–more on that to come.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first beast scooter, and it seems we’ll see a lot of high-performance, flagship scooters this year. This is a reference 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 with borrowed specs taken from the beast scooters. It surpasses the weight of resident light heavier models Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+ and Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. Additionally, it also comes with 11 inches road tires that are typical of beast scooters like Storm and Wolf King GT. Storm as well as the Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also impressive with a well above trend top speed per dollar, an impressive range per pound, as well as excellent brakes per dollar. This isn’t even the most impressive aspect. This off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than its closest rivals, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11. Varla Review.
Because of the big tires-something you always want to hear-the scooter has great ground clearance at over 36 inches. They’re also excellent for traction, however they could be improved. The suspension is stiff and bouncy when riding urban trails, but the stiffness can be useful when riding off-road. But you might not like the short deck or its uncomfortable kickplate, especially off-road.

It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s acceleration is not typical of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is far superior. Varla Review. It is tested to have an acceleration rate of 2.1 seconds, which is close to the 15 mmh mark. This is the performance you would expect from heavyweights with a long history like the 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 category will be Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+ with a 1.9 seconds of acceleration up 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 it also shares identical dead zones. It is possible to locate an angle to anchor your thumb in order to stabilize it and give it an ideal reference location when engaging.
We are awestruck by our love for the Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for its price. The scooter manages a whopping forty mph top speed, which is much higher than the what is considered to be average when contrasted with other scooters within the same price range. The higher-priced Kaabo Mantis Pro only hits a 37 mph top speed, while the Inokim OXO, still at the higher cost has a lower speed of 36 millimeters.
However, it also has competition from cheaper models such as that of the Wolf Warrior X Pro which has a top speed of 43 mph and the similar priced Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class, the scooter stands in its weight class and is in a league of its own and only is comparable with its predecessor, the Dualtron Thunder.
The Varla Eagle Pro scooter is amazing for a variety of things but hill-climbing is one of them. This electric scooter can go up hills without losing too much energy, and it isn’t slowing down with heavy riders or in poor battery levels. When we conducted our 60-meter hill test at a 10 percent slope and a 10% gradient, the scooter was able to maintain a speed of around 17 mph (and more than) till around 10% charge. Varla Review.
The company credits the superb hill climbing to the robust twin motors, rated at 1000 W each, with a peak power of 2600 W. Varla claims that the motors produce an impressive 36 Nm of torque, enough to push the scooter up gradients of up to 35deg.
There is nothing better than good mileage on the scooter, and it’s true that the Varla Eagle Pro scooter has a reasonable 58 km of range tested. The only scooter less than $400 of the Eagle One Pro that can surpass it in terms of distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range that was 41 miles. It outran other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles of range. Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles along with the Vsett 10+ at 33 miles.
Behind the range lies a high capacity 60V 24 Ah battery with 1440 Wh of energy. It’s bigger and more efficient with 21700 cell batteries. It’s a leap from its predecessor, that of the Eagle One, whose battery was rated at 946 wh and only came with 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries integrate smart battery management systems to preserve life. 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 aren’t dangerous or unreliable when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. In fact, the cable brakes plus EABS in Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro feature proven braking power that is truly remarkable and very easy to use. Varla Review.
The e-scooter stops in just 3 meters from an approximate speed that is 15 mph. This performance is in line with Vsett 10+. Vsett 10+. Again, the Varla Eagle Pro’s stopping strength is better than the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, and Nami BURN-E2.
It’s possible that you don’t like squeezing the levers with cable action that are on the Varla Eagle Pro the way you would do on an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes however, the Pro’s mechanical disc brakes do not leave anything to be desired when they perform.
The EABS prevents your brakes from locking. They can be adjusted using the P-settings on the display. You can adjust them between 0 and 2 with 0 being an insufficient setting, while 2 is a stronger setting.
Its ride is good however, it’s not exceptional. The caveat they never discuss when talking about all-terrain e-scooters is that they are primarily focused on the off-roading measures.
The tubeless pneumatic road tires are excellent for comfort, especially when driving offroad. Their tubeless design is perfect to avoid pinch flats caused by rocks. However, if you’re getting the scooter to use primarily on roads, then it’s better to switch to self-sealing knobby tires. They will automatically increase the traction of your scooter, maintain your comfort, and reduce maintenance. Also, thanks to the tires and the 17 centimeter clearance from the ground obstructions on the track will not scrape the deck beneath.
The suspension feels stiff. The Varla Eagle Pro could have been better off with adjustable shocks or adapting a spring with lower spring rates. The stiff suspension works well when taking on large bumps, and stops the scooter from bottoming out. On well-maintained tracks the suspension is slightly bouncy and not enough for the comfort.
It is also equipped with a steering damper. Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. When driving at high speeds and straight tracks, riders will experience excellent stability. At top speed, the stability isn’t as good as that from dual-stem beasts like those on the Wolf King GT but rather is more like the Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn with a damper for steering installed. However, the damper on the steering also makes it so that drivers be forced to work harder on the handlebars when negotiating turns.
The deck is another point to be concerned about. It’s too narrow and due to this lack of deck space it is a constant struggle for riders to rest their back feet on the footrest that isn’t ergonomically designed. The only bright side to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro can make up for a poor stance with an excellently laid-out and comfortable cockpit that is comfortable to hold. It is designed for comfort and ease of use. The controls have been also ergonomically designed and complement the well-readable, large 9 centimeter screen.
Overall, between the hefty feel of the steering, the sporty riding stance and the rumbling acceleration The Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride, but it could also be a bit of an exercise when you’re riding hard.
