Exotic Nutrition's Silent Runner Wheel 12" Wide 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, 4" wide track, 4" diameter openings, 13" tall on stand, 5" wide on stand. 

*IDEAL FOR: Hedgehogs, male Rats, Chinchillas (non-chewers), cages with multiple Sugar Gliders, and other 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.

This one is great and it is the perfect size. It's a little hard to clean if you use the cage attachment but it is still manageable. Love it! -Justine R.

My chinchilla loves this . Input the sandy track in it. She wont get out of it!! Best $$ I spent so far! -Donald C.

I love this wheel. I needed a different one because the one my hedgehog had was so noisy you could hear it in other rooms with the doors closed- not good when nobody else is nocturnal. This wheel is silent, it comes apart for super easy cleaning and goes back together no problem. Great purchase! -Chantel P.

This is the 3rd and best wheel I’ve tried for hedgehogs. My newest hedgehog just outgrew a smaller size wheel, so I was looking for the best possible wheel for her now that she is older. This lives up to the high reviews. It is silent (except for hearing hedgehog feet sprinting) and glides, making it easy for my hedgehog to run all night. Would definitely purchase again and again. -Nicole L.

So quiet!! Much much better then my old plastic wheel! I have a hedgehog and she is in my room, so it was hard to sleep at night, but with this new wheel it’s like she’s not even there. I only thing I can hear are her feet touching the wheel but I shure that can be fixed by trimming her nails down. -Cassisdy M.

Barely fits my male rats - might not work for really big boys. My wheel runner's posture is much better on this wheel than the previous one I had, although he's still a bit weirded out by how easily the wheel moves - any movement while he's in the wheel but not running will set it swinging back and forth quite significantly, and I can't seem to tighten the nut enough to minimize that movement. His non-wheel-running brother is not a fan of the swinginess, so he won't even use the wheel to nap. The wheel is definetly silent (though my wheel runner tends to walk rather than all out running), and seems easy to assemble. The excessive swinginess is annoying, but not enough to drop a star, given how nice the rest of it is. -Emily R.

This wheel is amazing! My hedgehog loves it! It’s easy to clean. The assembly takes some finicking, but easy to get acquainted with practice. And you can order spare parts to the wheel, instead of paying for a whole new one! -Jennifer E.

I bought the large silent runner, and my hedgehog loves his new wheel. We replaced the Carolina storm wheel with this and this is by far more designed for adult hedgehogs. Would recommend this wheel for any hedgie owners.

Ordered two and my chinchillas love them!!! One of them even lounges in it when she's not running in it! -Kristen M.

I do not hear this wheel at all! So easy to clean and my little hedgie loves it! Sarah M.

My chinchilla loves it and we love how quiet it is! My chinchilla does love to chew on it though. -Rami S.

This is a nicely made product. It is as described. My daughter's hedgehog likes it. He started using it right away! -James B.

It's not 100% silent, but my Hedgehog wouldn't run on any wheel until I got this one. Now he won't stop running on it! As long as he's happy I'm happy with it! It's plastic and easy to clean! -Nichole P.
