If you’re looking for a fun way to get around town, there’s no better option than the Varla Eagle One Scooter. This electric scooter is designed to make your commute efficient and enjoyable. From its powerful motors to its sleek design, the Varla Eagle One Scooter is an ideal choice for those who want a reliable and stylish ride.
In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the features and benefits of the Varla Eagle One Scooter, and provide our opinion on whether or not it’s worth the investment.
Speed and Acceleration
The Varla Eagle One can go as fast as 40 miles per hour. The Eagle One not only gives you a taste of what high-performance scooters can do, but it also does so without a high price tag. You get more for your money than you might expect.
The acceleration is fast, too. When in “Eco” mode, the acceleration is smooth and silky, but in “Turbo” mode, with both 1000W motors turned on, you should be ready for a fast start. The throttle is sensitive to touch, and if you’re not ready, it can make the powerful scooter jump out in front of you.
Up to 40 miles can be covered by the Varla Eagle One. Now, you should never trust the mileage listed on a scooter’s marketing materials. After all, how far you can go on a scooter depends on how much you weigh, how steep the terrain is, and how hard you press the accelerator.
The Eagle One’s range is very close to what Varla says it will be. The scooter’s great 52V 18.2Ah Lithium-ion battery has a lot to do with this. The Eagle One’s QS-S4 display and voltmeter make it easy to check the battery’s capacity.
Hill Climb Test
Depending on where you live or where you plan to ride, steep hills can be a scooter’s Achilles heel. For a scooter to give you the power you need to climb hills, it needs to be able to produce a lot of torque. The Eagle One would be a good choice. With two 1000W motors and a 52V controller that puts out a circuit-crushing amount of torque, you’ll be able to climb even the steepest hills without breaking a sweat.
With a 10-degree slope (17.6% grade), the scooter was up to the challenge, and its speed only dropped by 1 mph the whole way up. After 10 degrees, the Eagle One is more than able to climb steep streets like San Francisco’s Lombard Street, which has a steep angle of 15.1 degrees (27% grade).
The Braking System
The Eagle One has a lot of stopping power thanks to its dual hydraulic disc brakes. You always feel like you’re in charge of the scooter, but there are some things you need to know. Each hydraulic brake can be used on its own. The brake on the back is controlled by the lever on the left side of the handlebars, and the brake on the front is controlled by the lever on the right side.
When you need to stop, you should first use the rear brake to slow down, then use the front brake to stop the scooter in a safe way. It’s important to keep this in mind, especially if you plan to go as fast as possible (up to 40 mph). The brakes are so strong that even a small pull on them is enough to get the hydraulic discs moving.
When you pull on the brakes for the first time, you can feel the regenerative braking system start to slow the scooter down. This system just uses the energy that is wasted when the car slows down to recharge the batteries. On the QS-S4 display, you can change how much the regenerative braking works.
Also, it’s important to know that hydraulic brakes get rid of heat faster than disc and drum brakes. This makes them last longer and makes them better at stopping for a longer time.
The Eagle One has two ports for charging, but only one charger is included. You can buy a second charger for $69, or you can get it for free when you check out. I’d suggest doing this because it takes the Eagle One 9 hours to reach full power with just one charge. It only takes 5 hours if you have a second charger.
Folding and Portability
The simple quick-release levers let go of the collar-clamp at the base of the stem. Then, this clamp slides up the stem, making it easy to fold the scooter. The Eagle One doesn’t have a way to lock the stem into place on the deck. So, when the scooter is folded, you have to lift it by its deck instead of by its stem.
Some riders won’t mind this too much, especially since it’s meant to be the journey instead of just a part of it like commuter scooters, which are smaller and lighter. A deck hook is one of the free gifts you can choose when you buy an Eagle One. This comes with two parts: a strong steel clamp with a folding latch and a hook that screws into the back of the deck below the kickplate.
The folding latch, which is attached just below the handlebars, slides into the deck hook once it is in place. This holds the stem in place so it’s easy to pick up (albeit the 77 lbs weight). The Varla Eagle One’s handlebars don’t fold, which is a shame.
With a length of 21.6 inches and a width of 9.1, it’s clear that the engineers who designed the Eagle One had rider safety and stability in mind when they drew up the plans. The Eagle One’s deck is huge, which makes it comfortable to ride, and there is even a kick plate at the back of it.
This raised, reinforced platform is held up by a spring suspension system that looks like a piston. It can hold all of your weight, so you can lean forward and feel safe doing it. In terms of safety, the Eagle One’s deck is made of a grip tape that feels like sandpaper. Even though deck tape works fine to keep you on the board, rubber surfaces usually provide better grip.
It would be nice to see this on any future re-releases of the Eagle One. Still, grip tape has some good points, especially when it looks this good. The Eagle One comes with four different kinds of grip tape: a skull on fire, a stylized black-and-white American flag, an Apache helicopter, and a colorful graffiti design.
Another thing that is good about grip tape is that, unlike rubber, it is easy to replace when it gets worn out. You’ll save time, trouble, and money.
The Varla Eagle One has two air-filled tires that are 10 inches by 3 inches. They are made to be comfortable and absorb shocks, and, unlike solid tires, they can handle the challenges of off-road terrain. So, are the wheels on the Eagle One better for on-road or off-road use?
Both are the right answers. That’s not an easy way out; the Eagle One just has two sets of tires. Road tires are what come with the Eagle One. But it can also have knobby tires with treads that work great on dirt roads and cross-country trips. This second set of off-road tires, which are, by the way, very easy to put on.
You can also choose one of them as your “free gift” when you buy something. You don’t have to stay in the city, though. The road tires can handle dirt tracks, but the back wheel may spin as it tries to hold on to the loose ground. This is where the off-road tires shine.
With a width of 25.5 inches, the handlebars are wider than the Wolf Warrior (24.6 inches), Dualtron Ultra (24 inches), and yes, even the Dualtron X (24.8 inches). What do you like about the wide handlebars? Because they are bigger, riders can stand in a way that gives them the best control, especially when it comes to keeping the steering column steady at the top speed of 40 mph.
The Eagle One’s control center, which includes the QS-S4 LCD display and finger throttle, is attached to the handlebars. This lets you see your speed, gear, battery life, and mileage at a glance and also lets you change how the scooter is set up to fit your needs. The battery voltmeter, which gives an accurate reading of battery power, and the key ignition are both right below the screen.
If you move to the left, you’ll find the bell along with the buttons for Eco, Turbo, and motor. On each side of the handlebars, you can use your hands to stop the bike. The one on the right controls the hydraulic disc brake on the front wheel, and the one on the left controls the brake on the back wheel.
The frame of the Eagle One is made of aluminum, which gives the scooter some durability but doesn’t make it very light. Even if you don’t care about weight, there’s a lot to like about how the Eagle One’s frame looks.
The Eagle One has a black body with metallic red accents on the handlebars, stem, front and rear fenders, and around the handlebars. This gives it a lot of personality.
The Quality of the Ride
When you’re going to be riding on and off-road, your scooter needs to be easy to ride. And the Varla Eagle One does a good job in this area. The suspension on the swingarm is great, and you can easily change it by tightening or loosening each spring.
The pneumatic tires also help by absorbing shock as they eat up the ground, and the long, wide deck with a reinforced kick plate that lets you lean into the scooter gives you more stability and comfort overall.
For long rides, the Eagle One’s optional seat attachment will make it easier on your legs, and the perfect cruise control setting will do the same for your finger
Can You Ride the Varla Eagle One in the Rain?
It can be used in light rain. The Varla Eagle One is not waterproof, so it’s not a good idea to ride in heavy rain. The electrical components are not waterproof and may become damaged if exposed to water. If you do get caught in the rain, make sure to dry off the Eagle One as soon as possible.
Is This Scooter Worth the Investment?
The Varla Eagle One is worth the investment for those looking for a reliable, high-performance electric scooter. With a top speed of 40 mph, two 1000W motors, and a range of up to 40 miles, the Eagle One can take you wherever you need to go.
Its air-filled tires and adjustable suspension make it suitable for both on-road and off-road use, and its wide handlebars, dual hydraulic disc brakes, and reinforced deck provide a safe and comfortable ride. The QS-S4 display and voltmeter make it easy to check the battery, and the optional seat attachment makes long rides more comfortable.
All in all, the Varla Eagle One is a great ride for anyone looking for an electric scooter that can do it all.
The Varla Eagle One is an excellent electric scooter for those who want a reliable and powerful ride. Its two 1000W motors provide enough power for you to reach speeds of up to 40 mph, and its 52V 18.2Ah Lithium-ion battery can take you up to 40 miles before needing a recharge.
Its adjustable suspension, wide handlebars, and dual hydraulic disc brakes make it a safe and comfortable ride, and the optional seat attachment makes it great for long rides. If you’re looking for an electric scooter that can do everything, the Varla Eagle One is a great choice.
