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.

I love it and even better the rats love it! -Alan C.

The sugar gliders love it. It is quiet which is beneficial because the sugar gliders are in our bedroom. It is well made and was easy to put on the stand and to switch the track. -Sandy T.

Very quiet!! Ted the Hedgehog loves it! Best one I have found. -Rosie

I wasn’t sure our hedgehog would understand how to get in and out by himself, so I put him in it and turned it by hand so he would have to move his feet. I left him in there and he was out in the morning, so I guess he figured it out. Now he runs on it a lot. I like that it has the cover on the outside so he won’t fall out while using it. The sandy track does work. His nails were really long when we got him, and the sandy track is way better than trying to trim his nails. That way took three people and 40 minutes to trim one nail! Happy our hedge likes his wheel! -Brenda

The Silent Runner is way better than the Kaytee brand. The wheel comes apart and makes it extremely easy to clean up after hedgehog droppings. Highly recommend! -Guadalupe R.

It's a lot better than the other ones I have had that had the post in the middle and also safer for the sugar gliders.

by on July 19, 2017

It's definitely super quiet and great for my li'l spiky friend, unfortunately it not the easiest to pull apart and put together when it comes to cleaning. Still, i really appreciate this product. It works exactly as it says it should.
