Exotic Nutrition's Silent Runner Wheel 9" 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, stainless steel ball bearings ensure the wheel 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 dissembles 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!

APPROXIMATE SIZE: 9" wheel diameter, 3" wide track, 2.75" diameter openings, 10" tall on stand, 4" wide on stand. 

IDEAL FOR: Hamsters (Robo, Syrian, Teddy Bear, Dwarf, etc.), Gerbils, 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.

MAINTENANCE: 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. Place a few drops of mineral oil or baby oil on the metal bearings after every wash (located within the black back plate). 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. Make sure to dry the bearings thoroughly, as inadequate drying may lead to the bearings seizing. Place a few drops of mineral oil or baby oil on the bearings, reassemble the wheel with the texture side of the track facing inwards, and reinstall on stand or cage attachment. If you neglect to maintain your 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. 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.

My hamster loves, i mean 'LOVES', this wheel!! It's absolutely perfect!! Its VERY quiet and the quality is impressive. I'm planning to purchase another wheel for my other hamster.

This is a great wheel and my sugar gliders LOVE it!!! It is very quiet and easy to assemble and clean. The sandy track works great for keeping their nails short.

Really is silent--just the noise of little hamster feet hitting plastic. We have a glass tank so the metal base was making a noise against the glass, but a little bedding under it solved the problem. Extremely happy with this wheel.

Our winter white uses this wheel. I don't think she had a wheel before coming home to us at over a year old, so she will run for a little, then stop, then start back up. It is a great, safe wheel. My only problem is that in glass aquariums, the metal base- (solid and sturdy!), wiggles on the glass bottom. This can create quite the noise. I have used packing tape all around it, and that certainly helps. I taped the sides of the base of our 12" in with our Syrian, and it isn't enough to stop the rattling, so I am hoping a full tape around the base will fix it. Overall, would get again.

It's silent. It's quiet. All our hamsters love it. And to top it off, it is safe for our hamsters to use. I wouldn't use any other wheel.

It is very quiet, just like the title says. Love the sandy track for the nails. Easy to assemble, clean and take apart. The base is heavy enough to keep the wheel in place.

Much quieter than the older wheel I had.
