Varla’s NEW 45 MPH Electric Scooter: Eagle One PRO First Impressions!
The newest and fastest electric scooter from Varla is here! The Eagle One PRO has a lot of great features, but also has some issues. I’ll tell you all about the good and the bad in this first impressions video.
Update: Varla has just released a red, hydraulic brake version of the Eagle One PRO. It seems like this was their intention from the beginning, but I wasn’t made aware of it.
The Eagle One Pro is an updated version of the most-seller two-wheeler, called known as the Eagle One. While the design has nearly remained the same the Eagle One Pro is more fast, powerful and comes with a larger battery.
Take what you knew regarding Varla’s Eagle One and toss it out the window. This is the Varla Eagle One Pro is available, and it is nothing like the one it replaced. And it’s not just about the 52% larger battery, though that may have some connection to it. More about that in the near future.
The Eagle One Pro is Varla’s first and most powerful scooter and it’s looking like we’ll see lots of high-performance, flagship scooters this season. This is a an allusion to Segway’s GT Series and the brand new Apollo Pro.
Varla’s Eagle One Pro sits on the edge of being a light heavyweight scooter with borrowed specs from beast scooters. It surpasses the weight of regular light heavyweights like the Apollo Phantom, Vsett 10+, and Kaabo Mantis Pro, which weighs 79lbs. Also, it also features 11 inches road tires, typical of beast scooters like Wolf King GT and the Storm or Wolf King GT.
It’s a great scooter. Varla Eagle One Pro scooter is also amazing with a way above the trend top speed in dollars, an impressive distance per pound and outstanding brakes for the dollar. This isn’t the only great part. The off-road scooter is about $640 cheaper than the closest competing beasts, Segways GT1 and the Wolf Warrior 11.
Thanks to the large tires-something that you’re always hoping to hear about-the scooter is able to stand on the ground with a good clearance of more than 36 inches. They are also excellent for traction, but could be improved. The suspension feels stiff and bouncy on urban trails. But the stiffness is useful when traveling off-road. It’s possible that you’ll not enjoy the narrow deck or unpleasant kickplate, especially when off-road.
Top speed: 45 mph
Range: 36,1 miles
Weight: 90 lb
Max rider weight 335 lbs
Water resistance: IP54
Pros And Cons
- Large Tires for its Cost
- Amazing Large Display
- Ergonomically Laid Out Cockpit
- Minimal Stem Wobble Thanks to In-built Damping
- Suspension can Feel Stiff and Bouncy on City Trails
- Short Deck Leads to Riding Fatigue
- Creaky Stem
It is the Varla Eagle Pro’s speed isn’t the norm of lighter heavyweight scooters, it is significantly better. It is tested to have an acceleration of 2.1 seconds to the 15 mmh mark. This is the speed that’s expected of heavyweight scooters that have been around for a while, like the Wolf Warrior 11 at 1.9 seconds, Dualtron Thunder at 2.0 seconds as well as Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. Dualtron Thunder II at 2.2 seconds. The Varla Eagle Pro’s main competition within the light heavyweight category will be the Vsett 10+ with the 1.9 seconds acceleration time 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 has an identical dead zone. You might want to find an angle to anchor your thumb in order to keep it in place and provide it a reference point when engaging.
We’re awestruck with that the Varla Eagle Pro’s top speed, especially for the price. The scooter boasts a whopping 40 mph top speed that is well above the average when it is compared with other scooters in the same price bracket. The more expensive 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 is up against cheaper models such as it’s Wolf Warrior X Pro which can reach a top speed of 43 mph in comparison to the more affordable Vsett 10+ reaches 43,5 mph.
In its weight class, the scooter is in a class of its own and is comparable to Dualtron Thunder. Dualtron Thunder.
Its Varla Eagle Pro scooter is amazing for many things including hill-climbing, which is certainly one of them. This electric scooter will climb up hills without losing too much powerand does not ever seem to give up on high-powered riders or battery situations. When we conducted our 60-meter hill test with a 10% gradient and 10% slope, the scooter was able to maintain the speed of around 17 mph (and over) until it reached about 10% charge.
The company credits the superb climbing ability to the durable twin motors, rated at 1000 W each, with an output of 2,600W. Varla claims that the motors generate 336 Nm of torque, enough to push the scooter through hills of up to 35deg.
Nothing beats good mileage on the scooter and one of the best is the Varla Eagle One Pro scooter gives a good number of kilometers tested. It is interesting to note that the only scooter priced within $400 from the Eagle One Pro that can beat it on the distance is Wolf Warrior X Pro, with a test range of 41 miles. It beat other scooters with higher prices, e.g., the Kaabo Mantis Pro with a 33 miles range, Dualtron Eagle Pro at 32 miles and 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’s larger and more efficient with 21700 battery cells. This is an improvement from its predecessor, it was the Eagle One, whose battery was valued at 946 wh and was only equipped with 18650 lithium cells. Both batteries have smart battery management systems to ensure that the battery’s life is not compromised. The process of charging the battery to its capacity takes between 8 and 9 hrs, but you can secure another charger and limit charges to just 4-5 hours.
Let’s face it, we would prefer that all scooters came with hydraulic brakes. That’s not to say that electric scooters equipped with cable brakes aren’t dangerous or undependable when they come to stopping. Absolutely not. Actually, the cable brakes plus EABS of Varla Eagle Pro Varla Eagle Pro have a tested braking force that is truly remarkable and simple to set up.
The electric scooter stops in 3 meters from a speed that is 15 mph. This performance is in line with Vsett 10+. Vsett 10.+. In addition, the Varla Eagle Pro’s stopping power beats those of the Kaabo Wolf King, Kaabo Wolf Warrior X Pro, NAMI Burn-E, as well as Nami BURN-E2.
You might not like squeezing the levers with cable action in the Varla Eagle Pro like you would with an electric scooter that has hydraulic brakes but the Pro’s electronic disc brakes don’t leave much on the table when they perform.
The EABS stops the brakes from locking up. The brakes can be adjusted via the P-settings shown on the display. You can change them from 0 to 2 which means 0 is an insufficient setting, while 2 refers to a powerful setting.
The ride quality is good However, it’s not outstanding. The caveat they never speak about when promoting all-terrain e-scooters is that the focus should be on off-roading features.
The tubeless pneumatic road tires are excellent for ease of use, particularly when driving offroad. Their tubeless nature is great for avoiding pinch flats that are caused by rocks. If, however, you’re buying the scooter to use primarily on city tracks, then it’s best to change to self-sealing tubeless knobby tires. These would automatically double your traction, retain your comfort, and reduce maintenance. In addition, because of the tires and 17 centimeter clearance from the ground obstructions on the track won’t scrape the deck beneath.
The suspension feels rigid. In fact, the Varla Eagle Pro could have benefited more from adjustable shocks or adapting a spring with a lower spring rate. The rigid suspension works well when taking on large bumps, and stops the scooter from crashing. In well-maintained tracks it feels a little too bouncy for comfortable riding.
The Eagle Pro also comes with a built-in steering damper. With high speeds as well as straight track, users can enjoy a great stability. In top speed, the stability does not match that of dual stem beasts like Wolf King GT. Wolf King GT but rather seems like a Dualtron Thunder or Nami Burn fitted with a steering damper. On the flip side, the damper on the steering also means that riders be forced to work harder on the handlebars when making turns.
The deck is another area to be concerned about. It is too short, and because of the limited space on the deck, users are being forced to put their back feet on the footrest that isn’t ergonomically designed. One bright spot to this model is that Varla Eagle Pro is able to compensate for its poor stance , with a spacious cockpit that is comfortable to hold. It is designed for comfort and convenience. Controls are also ergonomically designed and compliment the highly-readable, large 9 centimeter screen.
Overall, with the firm control of the steering and the sporty riding posture as well as the powerful acceleration that the Eagle One Pro is exhilarating to ride. However, it can also be a bit of workout when you’re on the road for a long time.
