Varla Eagle One Pro All Terrains Electric Scooter Review


The Varla Eagle One Pro is one of the strongest high-powered electric scooters we have ever tested so far. This newly-released e-scooter comes with a frame that can support up to 330 lbs of weight. 

That’s not all; The Varla Eagle One Pro comes with a high-capacity battery that guarantees up to 35 miles of range on a single charge. All these features make the Eagle One Pro an admirable electric scooter. However, like most performance e-scooters, it is a very weighty machine.

So, is this electric scooter suitable for your riding profile? In this article, we go through all the features of the Eagle One Pro that we tested and help you determine if this monster is a good fit for you.

Complete Breakdown of the Varla Eagle One Pro

Motor and Power

Varla Eagle One Pro: Motor and Power

The Varla Eagle One Pro is equipped with two 1000-Watt brushless hub motors. Each of these powerful motors is capable of generating up to 1600W of power for a total of 3200 Watts max.

With all that power, it is no surprise this scooter is able to attain speeds of up to 45 miles an hour. One thing I don’t like about the scooter’s performance, however, is how slow it is to respond to the throttle. The upside to this flaw is that you’re less likely to get thrown off the scooter when you accidentally push the throttle. 

Range

Varla Eagle One Pro: Battery

I have to say, the Varla Eagle One Pro does come with a very impressive power unit. The scooter’s 60V lithium-ion battery is capable of storing up to 27Ah of current (a 48.35% increase in capacity from the base model’s 18.2Ah battery)

That’s more than enough energy for a 30-mile ride. Varla claims that the Eagle One Pro can cover up to 45 miles of range on a single range, however, our real-world tests put the e-scooter’s range at about 38 miles per full charge which is pretty close I have to admit. 

High-capacity batteries like the one in this e-scooter usually take a lot of time to recharge. Some electric scooter manufacturers usually fit an extra charging port to their e-scooters to reduce the time riders spend charging their devices, 

The Eagle One Pro falls into this category of e-scooters with two charging ports.

Speed

Varla Eagle One Pro: Speed

The Varla Eagle One Pro has a top speed of 45mph. This is the scooter’s advertised top speed though. Factors like rider weight, wind direction, remaining battery power, terrain type, etc. might affect the speed of the electric scooter under real riding conditions. 

The e-scooter comes programmed with three different speed modes. The first one propels the scooter to speeds of up to 16mph (25kph) while the second mode promises speeds as high as 28mph (45kph).

The third and final setting unlocks the true power of this electric scooter. Riders should be able to reach the scooter’s advertised max speed in this mode. This is at least what we were able to achieve during our field test.

Climbing Ability

Varla Eagle One Pro: Climbing Ability

This beast made it to the top of a very steep hill (10% grade) with an average speed of 17.1 mph in a real-world test carried by one of our team members who weighs 195 lbs..

Those are very impressive numbers considering the fact that there aren’t many electric scooters within the same class and price capable of powering up gradients that steep. 

Ride Smoothness

Varla Eagle One Pro: Ride Smoothness

The Varla Eagle One Pro is equipped with coil springs in both its front and rear ends. These shock absorbers swallow road irregularities and ensure that riders ensure smooth, comfortable rides on almost any kind of terrain. 

According to what we observed during our test, the shock absorbers can be a bit stiff sometimes, which, in my opinion, is a good thing since that means they’re less likely to bottom out when handling larger bumps. One thing I don’t like about the Varla Eagle One Pro’s suspension is that it’s not adjustable. 

The Eagle One Pro would probably have been more versatile if Varla had equipped it with adjustable shock absorbers. 

Weight Limit and Net Weight

Varla Eagle One Pro: Weight Limit and Net Weight

Pound for pound, the Varla Eagle One Pro is one of the sturdiest electric scooters on the planet. This high-performance electric scooter is capable of supporting up to 330 lbs (150 kg) of weight and it weighs just 90 lbs (41 kg).

Most of the e-scooters that are able to support 300+ pounds weigh in excess of 100 lbs. One of the most popular e-scooters that fall into this category is the Wolf King GT Pro

The Wolf King GT Pro weighs 115 lbs (52 kg) and has a payload capacity of 330 lbs. To find this e-scooter’s strength to weight ratio, we’ll divide its payload capacity by its net weight. 

This should give us 2.9 : 1. What this means is that for every 20 pounds that the Wolf King GT Pro weighs, it is able to support 58 lbs of weight. This is lower than the Varla Eagle One Pro’s strength to weight ratio of 3.7 to 1 (for every 20 pounds the Varla Eagle One Pro weighs, it is able to hold up 73 lbs of weight)

The table below compares the Varla Eagle One Pro’s weight capacity to other e-scooters in its class.

Portability

Varla Eagle One Pro: Portability

As you can tell by now, the Varla Eagle One pro is not a compact electric scooter. Besides weighing 90 lbs this e-scooter measures up to 53.1 inches in length even when it’s folded.

Turning, Control, and Balance

Varla Eagle One Pro: Mechanical and Hydraulic Brake

The Varla Eagle One Pro is available in both mechanical and hydraulic brake options. I strongly advise that you purchase the version with hydraulic brakes as it might require less maintenance than the former. 

In terms of control and steerability, I’d say the Eagle One Pro deserves a 7 out of 10. This electric scooter handles well even at high speeds. I’d probably have given it a higher rating if it wasn’t so stiff and hard to maneuver.

Water Resistance

Varla Eagle One Pro: Water Resistance

Every electric component in the Varla Eagle One Pro is protected against ingress from water splashes. This means it is safe to ride your e-scooter under light rain. 

Under no circumstances should you use a pressure nozzle to wash this electric scooter. Also, avoid submerging parts of the scooter inside water, especially areas that house electric components (like the wheels, the deck, etc.)

Upgrades and Accessories

Varla Eagle One Pro: Lighting

The Varla Eagle One Pro is a massive upgrade from the standard Eagle One. This e-scooter comes with better lighting, a bigger battery, wider pneumatic tires, a more advanced display, and a longer deck. 

It does, however, come with a slightly narrower deck than the Varla Eagle One. Plus, its handlebars aren’t as wide as its predecessor’s.

Pros & Cons of Varla Eagle One Pro All Terrains Electric Scooter

Pros

  • Stem wobble is minimal because of built-in dampers.
  • Comes with large tires for extra grip.
  • Durable frame.
  • Cables from the handlebars are routed through the scooters stem.
  • Suitable for riding on almost all types of terrain.
  • Very high battery capacity.
  • Varla includes an extra set of brake pads to the scooter’s packaging in case the other ones get worn and need to be replaced.

Cons

  • The e-scooter is very heavy.
  • The scooter’s throttle isn’t very responsive.
  • Recharging this e-scooter from empty to full using only the charger that comes with the unit can take up to 14 hours. You can purchase a second charger as using both charging ports can cut the e-scooter’s charge time to around 4-5 hours.

Who’s the Varla Eagle One Pro Not For

The Varla Eagle One Pro is not the best electric scooter for inexperienced riders and commuters. No question, the Eagle One Pro is designed to rip city streets.

However, its size and weight make it a very impractical option when compared to other commuter e-scooters. I wouldn’t recommend purchasing this e-scooter if you don’t have enough storage space in your home. There are lighter, much more compact options like the Fluid CityRider (a 28-pound electric scooter that costs under $600). 

Who’s the Varla Eagle One Pro For

This electric scooter is built for off-road riders, racers, recreational riders; pretty much anyone who’s adventurous. It’s also a great e-scooter for people who weigh upwards of 220 lbs.
