Speed

The Eagle One has a maximum speed of 40 miles per hour and can reach up to 36 miles on one charge.

Acceleration

This is not your childhood scooter, so the Eagle One is not the easiest to drive at super-slow speeds. After all, it is a popular commuting scooter.

With its powerful dual 1000 W motors, just tapping the accelerator can get you up to 5+ mph easily.

Brakes

The Eagle One features both front and rear disc brakes for reliable stopping power.

It also has an electronic brake system that will automatically reduce speed when your rear brakes are engaged.

Suspension

The Eagle One features an advanced suspension system to absorb shock and bumps on rough terrain, allowing you to ride in comfort no matter the road conditions.

Size and Weight

The Eagle One is relatively lightweight, weighing only 77 lbs (the Pro version weighs around 90 lbs), making it easy to carry around or store away.

It can support up to 330 lbs of weight at a time, though it tends to run most efficiently when the weight load is under 265 lbs.

Folding Design

The Eagle One has a folding design so you can store it away easily or take it with you anytime, anywhere.

Its handlebar assembly can be folded flat against the frame. Folding it involves removing the clasps and pushing that part of the handle upward to get it to fold.

Portability

The Varla is lightweight and easy to carry due to its folding design, making it the ideal choice for when you need to get around quickly.

Durability

The Varla Eagle One is made with durable materials that are designed to withstand harsh conditions and everyday use. Its advanced suspension system also helps provide added stability on rough terrain.

Safety

The powerful front and rear disc brakes give you reliable stopping power so you can ride safely no matter where your journey takes you. Its electric brake system also helps to slow down the scooter when needed.

Assembly

Assembly took about 15 minutes. It comes folded and wrapped around styrofoam blocks.

How the scooter comes once out of the box

Once you pull the handlebar display up, you will need to pull the clamps down and secure them to keep them upright. For some, this might be the biggest assembly stumbling block.

The scooter comes with a set of Allen wrenches and screwdrivers (within the same tool) to help you put the handlebars in place as well as tighten the various features on the handlebars, such as the speed gauge.

Finished setup

Speed Gauge

The speed gauge is on the right side of the handlebars and can be used to measure how fast you are going. It’s a handy feature for those times when you want to take it slow on the streets or if you need to keep an eye on your speed while riding in more open areas.

Scooter’s speed gauge

Always let common sense prevail when determining how fast you should be going.

Lights

Lights allow for night riding or for low-lit conditions. They are low mounted.

The 10 W, 900 lumens headlight is just as bright as an ordinary vehicle.

On top of that, the taillight also functions as a brake light, which helps other riders be aware of your braking and presence in dark conditions.

The taillight is also visible up to 1000 ft away.

Tires

The 10-inch pneumatic tubeless tires are anti-skid, making them great for riding on various surfaces.

They provide maximum grip with minimum rolling resistance, so you can easily maneuver the scooter without having to worry about slipping or losing control.

The tires are also airless and puncture proof to avoid pinch flats, giving you peace of mind when riding over rough terrain.

Deck

The deck is 19 inches long by 9.1 inches wide. We found it to have more than enough foot space to comfortably fit both feet.

The deck is made of anti-slip material, so your feet won’t slide off when you take sharp turns or hit uneven surfaces.

It also provides 7 inches of ground clearance, so you will feel high up when riding.

The deck design is also changeable, as the scooter came with three other adhesives in case you’d like to change the design.

Build Quality

Overall, the build quality is solid and reliable.

The frame is made of aerospace-grade aluminum alloy and magnesium, making it lightweight yet sturdy and reliable.

The handlebars are also adjustable so you can customize them to your height and preferences.

All in all, we found the Varla Eagle One Scooter to be a great choice for those who want an efficient and reliable way to get around town or just enjoy some outdoor recreation while staying safe.

Its durable components make it suitable for everyday use and its portability makes it easy to take with you wherever you go. With its powerful brakes and lights, you have the right tools at hand for any kind of journey.

Battery

The battery is electric and located under the deck.

There are two charging ports on the right side of the scooter (or left side when facing toward it).

In our experience, the scooter takes a bit over an hour to charge up out of the box.

Safety

With the scooter’s headlight, taillight, and warning bell, there are plenty of great safety features.

The Eagle One Pro also comes with an NFC key reader, so nobody is moving your scooter when you’re not around. (The Eagle One does not come with this feature.)

And on a personal level, be sure to take some time to get used to your scooter before using it out and about. The scooter can really go fast, so be sure to get used to it at slower speeds and test your brakes and lights. Start on flat terrain before using it on inclines or on more rugged surfaces.

Warranty

The scooter comes with a two-year warranty for the original buyer that allows for the repair or replacement of defective parts.

Price

The Varla Eagle One is generally around $1,699.

The price is always available on the official website.
