  • Dual ball bearings for low friction (smooth, quiet spin) - "things roll quieter than they slide"
  • Textured running tracks (non-slip, excellent grip) - sandy nail trimmer tracks sold separate
  • Axle-free construction (no risk of spinal injury or tail / fur entanglement)
  • Metal stand allows for give, preventing joint pain - wire cage attachment sold separately
  • Approx size: 13.5" tall (on stand) x 5" wide (3.5" wide track) x 12" diameter

Exotic Nutrition's new 12" Silent Runner wheel is recommended for sugar gliders, female rats, and other similar small animals (not suggested for chewing animals). The axle-free construction eliminates the dangerous center axle that many pet running wheels have, reducing the risk of tail entanglement and spine injuries. The Silent Runner dual ball bearing design ensures the wheel runs smooth and quite, unlike many of the annoying squeaky wheels on the market. You'll love the pet-safe all metal stand, built to last! Approx size: 13.5" tall (on stand) x 5" wide (3.5" wide track) x 12" diameter wheel, 4" diameter openings.

Check out some of our great Silent Runner accessories too (sold separately)! The Cage Attachment allows you to save cage floor space by attaching the wheel to the wire wall of a cage. Sandy Trimmer tracks provide an easy alternative for trimming nails!

PROPER MAINTENANCE: Your Silent Runner wheel should be cleaned regularly. Disassemble the wheel and clean all parts with warm soapy water, rinse, and allow to air dry completely. Do not submerge bearings in water! Make sure to dry the bearings thoroughly as inadequate drying may lead to the bearings seizing. Place a few drops of mineral oil on each bearing, reassemble the wheel, and reinstall on stand or cage mount.

NOTE: It is important that the bearings are oiled on a regular basis (once per month minimum). Silent Runner wheels are dishwasher safe (top rack only) but exposure to water should be limited. Running tracks are textured on one side for secure grip. Assemble tracks so textured side of track is facing inwards. If you neglect to maintain your Silent Runner wheel properly, the bearings may become corroded and seize, which can cause the wheel to unscrew from the stand or cage attachment when your pet is running in the wheel. If this happens, you will need to replace the bearings. See parts section for replacement bearings.

My hamster is a chunky butt and this wheel works great. She loves it, she runs all night and the wheel is so quiet.

The minute we put this fabulous exercise wheel into the hamster's cage, he jumped in and away he went! He's only about 3" and the wheel is 12"; we figured he'd be afraid of it at first, but no way. It is quiet, smooth, and has plenty of room for our Syrian hamster

It has to be cleaned like every other day because it has no way for the urine and feces to drain. [Edit: a perforated AutoClean Track is available to allow drainage]

An outstanding wheel for gliders. Have been so happy with the first one over the past 8 months that I'm ordering a second one with cage hangers as my colony has grown..

Bought this for Ziva, my Syrian hamster as the other wheels and flying saucers I had kept moving around and made quite some noise. She is a runner! And since we share the same room, we had to come up with a solution that lets her run all night while I get to sleep. This wheel is awesome so far. If I'm super quiet I might hear her paws a little bit. I also think she loves the size of the wheel since she doesn't have to bend her spine. She still makes this wheel move around a bit but not as much as the other ones before.
