Exotic Nutrition's Silent Runner Wheel 12" Regular is the most innovative wheel on the market for its safety features and whisper-silent spin. The axle-free construction eliminates the dangerous center axle that many wheels have, reducing the risk of fur/tail entanglement, pet wrap-a-round, curvature of the spine, and other spine injuries. The wheel spins using dual-ball bearing technology, ensuring it glides smooth and quiet, unlike many of the annoying squeaky wheels on the market. The heavy-duty metal stand allows for give, protecting your pet from joint pain caused by running on a hard, fixed surface. Running tracks are textured, for excellent grip. Wheel completely disassembles for easy cleaning, no nooks for feces to hide in. Designed with a front plate for safety and containment, with natural bean-shaped openings. Features pet-preferred solid black walls. You'll love this wheel's silence, safety, and durability, it is truly built to last! Check out the videos below or simply search "Silent Runner Wheel" on YouTube to witness the smooth, silent spin for yourself!

What is dual ball-bearing technology? Two stainless steel ball-bearings are located within the back plate of the wheel, ensuring the wheel glides smooth and silent. These innnovative bearings SPIN with the bolt as your pet runs, unlike many of the annoying squeaky wheels on the market that have a bolt that SLIDES as your pet runs, creating noise. 

APPROXIMATE SIZE:  12" wheel diameter, 3.5" wide track, 4" diameter openings, 13.5" tall on stand, 5" wide on stand.

*IDEAL FOR: Sugar Gliders, female Rats, Hamsters (Robo, Syrian, Teddy Bear, Dwarf, etc.), Mice, and other similar small animals (not suggested for chewing animals). 

ACCESSORIES: Pet nails can grow to be long and sharp. Not only can this be painful to owners during handling, it can also cause your pet to frequently get stuck on fabrics, like pouches or clothing. Nail trimming using clippers can be difficult and may even cause injury to your pet if done incorrectly. Sandy Trimmer Tracks provide a soft, abrasive running surface for your pet while using their exercise wheel. Simply install the sandy track in place of the regular track, it takes less than a minute, and your pet’s nails will be naturally filed down as they run (see assembly instructions and video below). Keep the sandy trimmer track in for 1-2 days per week (or monitor when nails are filed). This track is completely safe and will not cause harm or discomfort to your pet. Conveniently hand-washable and reusable to last the lifetime of your pet. Do not submerge sandy trimmer track for long periods of time. It may be necessary to initially trim pet's nails with clippers before using a sandy trimmer track. Then the track will keep the trimmed nail smooth through frequent use of the sandy track. The AutoClean Track has a perforated design which allows feces, urine, and other pet debris to drain from the wheel, to save time cleaning and increase ventilation within the wheel. The Silent Runner Cage Attachment allows you to attach the wheel directly to any wire cage to free up floor space, or mount at different heights. All accessories sold separately.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL: "Just wanted to send a quick note and let you know that I recently ordered from your company for the first time and was very impressed with the speediness of my shipment, as well as the amazing quality of the Silent Runner Wheel that I purchased. It felt like spinning the wheels on a nice pair of roller blades, and even better, was just as silent. My diminutive hamster had no problem spinning the larger wheel, and the difference in noise level from our previous "silent spinner" and this new wheel is night and day. The fact that we can now sleep easy while our hamster gets the exercise he needs throughout the night makes the purchase price more than worth it. Thanks again for the excellent service and the wonderful product." - Fernando S.

CLEANING: See video below. Wipe down the wheel with a non-toxic disinfectant wipe (Kage Kleen) daily if you wish. Wash thoroughly at least once per week by disassembling the wheel and cleaning with warm soapy water, rinsing, and allowing to air dry completely. Wheel is also dishwasher safe, top rack only. Do not submerge the back plate where the metal bearings are held, it is recommended to simply wipe the plate down without letting water come in contact with the bearings. Note: As of October 2017, all Silent Runner Wheels are made with new sealed / encased ball-bearings that can not get wet and therefore do not need to be oiled. Previous to October 2017, owners needed to dry and oil the bearings thoroughly, as inadequate drying may lead to the bearings becoming corroded, seizing and not able to spin, and then causing the wheel to unscrew from the stand or cage attachment when the pet was running in the wheel. This is no longer an issue. Click here for replacement bearings.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS: See video below. Remove the standard running track on your Silent Runner wheel. It is easiest to place wheel face-up on a table, insert hand into wheel to hold back plate down, and pull front plate up. Once disassembled, begin by inserting the corner of the Sandy Track into the molded edges of the black back plate for the Silent Runner Wheel. Once the corner edge is pushed in, begin working the sandy track all the way around the wheel into the groove. Once completely in the groove, push the clear connector into place connecting both ends of the track. Set the front plate on the sandy track, and starting with the side away from the connector, work one small section of the sandy track into the front plate groove. Once a small section of the track is in the groove, apply pressure (squeeze down) all the way around the wheel until the track is in place. You may need to push the last section near the clear connector in with your fingers. Set the wheel down on a table and apply pressure all the way around the wheel to secure the track in place.

Built using a ball bearing so it runs quietly and smoothly. Base is bent plate and not just a formed bar so wheel sits better than most wheels on the market. The insatiable sandy track worked very well with our hamster and wore down the long nails quickly. Overall a good product.

This is our sugar gliders favorite wheel, he loves it and runs on it so fast. It's super quiet.

I have a couple of these because I have one in each of my glider's cages. I have never had to trim any of my glider's nails and I have been raising gliders for several years now. Plus they are quiet. These are by far the best wheels for sugar gliders.

The track was difficult to change out and after more research, I found that it is better to have a track with holes so the poo and pee falls through. [like the AutoClean track]

My sugar gliders can't get enough of it, love having the sandy track as well it really does help keep their nails short, but make sure you only leave it on for no more than 48 hours then put regular track back in.. Easy to install and take apart to clean.. My next purchase will be the cage attachment instead of using the stand it came with.. Great purchase, fast delivery and great price!

Works great and does not make any noise. My gliders love it!
