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.

Its very quiet and oil a little when it gets squeaky. My Noodle, syrian, really loves it after i replace his not very good of excused ducted taped mesh wheel (by the previous owner). -Jennifer N.

My sugar gliders love this wheel, and I love how quite it is! The nail file track works great, my girls are still a little wild, so it keeps their nails trim for me. -Nicole D.

Really nice wheel, only wish it came in more colors. My sugar gliders love it, especially the one that wouldn’t use the other wheel! Now she’s on it all the time. I put it in the cage (didn’t even have it secured) and she hopped right on it. -Mareena R.

These are the best wheels ever!! Gliders use them daily. -Shannon G.

My sugar gliders love it! They play on it every night. -Megan B.

At first the wheel made lots of noise but the gliders still loved it. Exotic nutrition sent me a picture of how to properly assemble the wheel and it works like a charm. Spins even faster and the gliders can’t get enough. Definitely recommend this product. My gliders run on it for hours none stop. -Marco R.

This is exactly what our Sugar Gliders needed. They have been going nuts on it since we got it and there is no noise. When we ordered it, it came super fast. Definitely will be ordering from here again!! -Renee S.

I was skeptical about this wheel at first, but WOW is it quiet! -Kevin S.

by on June 2, 2018

Our Sugar Glider, Meeka wasted no time getting into her wheel, even not waiting until we secured it to the side of her cage! She seems to enjoy it very much and chirps when she stops to look out to see if we're watching. The Sandy Track works great as well. It's like getting a pedicure while at the gym! -Cricket L. H.

by on May 16, 2018

The wheel is great. Nice and quiet. We purchased the Cage Attachment mount and it takes up less room in their cage. The girls love it. I also bought the Sandy Track insert ( we haven't used this yet) but I am sure it will work great. -Teri

My two sugarbabies love this wheel. Their cage is in my 3 year olds room and this wheel is very quiet. Happy!! -Jaimie A.

My sugar glider loves this wheel! She runs on it constantly. The sandy strip really helps with her nails.

by on April 28, 2018

I am in love with the silent runner wheel! Makes no noise at all! I love the sanding paper that goes in it. It really helps on nail trimming! I have one baby that goes so fast she almost throws herself out! Highly recommended! -Annette A.

My little Suggie loves this! As soon as we put it in her cage she was running her little tail off. So happy we bought this! -Sharon

Work perfect for me. I started with one and now I own 4. Would recommend. -Ashley

by on February 26, 2018

Definitely is quiet. Don't hear it at all. My gliders love it. I was skeptical if a full grown glider would fit in it but they do. As full the nail trimming, it really only prolongs me not having to actually clip their nails as soon. It'll buy me a couple extra weeks before I have to clip them. Does Not completely keep them trimmed on any of my gliders but still is a great wheel.

by on February 25, 2018

Our sugar gliders love this silent wheel, especially after leaving behind a much smaller one. The only sound is their tiny feet/claws hitting the deck, and yes, the sandy track actually trims those sharp, little claws. I reccommend the package with the cage attachment kit and sand belt. Worth it!

by on February 10, 2018

I put 2 wheels in my 4 level cage for my gliders and every night they put their time in on those wheels. They are quiet and dont hear any squeaks or noise coming from the wheel at all, unlike all those metal wheels we had 15 to 20 years ago for our hamsters and gerbils that would squeak all night long. I will def. get this wheel for any other animals I get.

by on January 17, 2018

This is my second silent runner wheel. I previously purchased the 12 inch wide. Love the smaller design of the regular 12 inch and my sugar gliders love to run. I'm sure I'll be buying another soon since one spends a lot of time running. Definitely my #1 choice for glider wheels.

by on January 8, 2018

Our little Hedgehog Harvey loves his new runner! We love it too because it is so quiet and has such a great build quality. The Sandy track has helped file his little nails down, which is a welcome feature!

My babies love this! And I no longer have to clip their nails! It's a little difficult to clean though.

Well made. Sugar gliders love it. Could be easier to clean though.
