The first and only...GLOW-IN-THE-DARK pet exercise wheel. Exotic Nutrition's NEW Silent Runner GLO Wheel is the coolest new accessory for your pet's cage! Special night-illumination allows you to watch your pet run while they enjoy their natural dark habitat. Great for sugar gliders and other nocturnal pets! You'll love this wheel's silence, safety, and durability, truly built to last. 

  • Axle-free construction eliminates the dangerous rod going through the center of other wheels, preventing fur/tail entanglement, pet wrap-a-round, curvature of the spine, and other injuries. 
  • Whisper-silent spin using dual-ball bearing technology.
  • Running tracks are textured, for excellent grip.
  • Wheel completely disassembles for easy cleaning, no nooks for feces to hide in.
  • Designed with a glow-in-the-dark front plate and all-black accessories

Measurements:  12" wheel diameter, 3.5" wide black track, 4" diameter openings, 13.5" tall on stand.

IDEAL FOR: Sugar Gliders, female rats, hamsters, mice, and similar small mammals (not suggested for chewing animals). 

What is dual ball-bearing technology? Two stainless steel ball-bearings are positioned within the back plate of the wheel, ensuring the wheel glides smooth and silent. The innovative bearings SPIN around the center pin as your pet runs, unlike annoying squeaky wheels on the market that have an axle that the wheel rotates around creating friction and noise. 

All accessories sold separately. The Silent Runner Cage Attachment allows wheel attachment directly to any wire cage to free up floor space, or mount at different heights. Fits with Sandy Trimmer Tracks and the AutoClean Track.

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.

Best wheel for sugar gliders. Bought two! One for each glider. The wheel does okay on the stand but does travel a bit in the cage, one wheel is attached to side with cage attachment, both work just as well -Katie C.

For Dwight, I own two of the wheels and when I first got them I put the washer in the wrong place causing the wheel to loosen daily once I realized that I needed to put the tightening washer in a different place no more problems quiet as can be except for the thumping of their cute little feet! I hope you enjoy the wheels as much as my suggies have enjoyed their wheels -Linda C.

It’s not as silent as I thought it was going to be and have to tighten it a lil every night. -Will B.

My flying squirrels absolutely love the the silent wodent runners, I decided to get this one because I had the orange 12’ one already and wanted a differently color. It doesn’t glow though, so if that’s what you’re wanting don’t buy this, just get the regular orange one. -Sanchari F.

My chinchillas love this wheel. It’s silent and has a smooth ride. The way it mounts to the cage is secure and safe for my little furries. So much cheaper than the leading chinchilla wheels out there, but the quality is so much better. Easy to clean and they haven’t been interested in chewing it. -Susie K.

Better and more quiet than any other wheel I’ve tried! Have 2 now. Will continue to use and recommend. Exotic nutrition seems to be an excellent company that truly wants your sugs to be healthy and happy. Along with being informed and knowledgeable parents. Beyond impressed with these guys and will continue doing business. If you haven’t watched their info & product videos- 100% must see. They really show who’s behind the store and why they do what they do. Love it. Ps. Thanks you guys- there’s not much out there for quality glider products as safe and healthy as yours. I appreciate your store! -Shelby

I now have 2 of these. I do not know if it actually glows in the dark as its never expose to tons of light since my suggies are nocturnal; I got it because it was a different color than the orange one I already have. I keep the sandy track in there and it keeps my girls nails pretty well maintained with the help of some sandy branches, perches, and quarterly nail trimmings. -Holly D.

It’s a silent runner. Perfectly quiet and the kids love it. But it DOES NOT glow in the dark. Pretty disappointed. -Allison S.

[Response from Seller: Thank you for your review, Allison. Please be sure the wheel has access to sunlight during the day, which will create the glow-in-the-dark effect at night. We hope this information helps!]

My little suggies love this wheel, were straight on it within minutes of me putting it in even with the sand track as hoping to keep their claws in check. -Kat W.

I just recently got in two of these wheels I bought for both my Syrian hamsters. They’re super easy to assemble, I use it with the stand not attached to the cage. And these wheels make no noise whatsoever. The previous wheels I had for them were very loud and kept me up at night. But with these wheels I have no problem with that. The stand is made of out metal, which keeps it very sturdy and the plastic is hard plastic so it’s not flimsy. It’s very easy to spin, it take very little effort. I highly recommend this wheel! -Izabell V.

Love it, but the included bolt is about 1/4 inch shorter than my other Silent runners cage attachment bolt. Had to buy a longer bolt. -Joe

My hamster loves this wheel and the glow is perfect! I ordered it from Italy and it arrived in 8 days so I was happy too. -Giulia P.

I've had my 9in wheel for my Syrian for about a year and half now. The wheel works perfectly still. But it is time for an upgrade since he has grown in fur and size. He's a long haired Syrian so sometimes his long hairs get stuck so hopefully the 12in wheel will be better. Just a tip I'd go with the 12in right off the bat instead of buying another wheel once your hammy grows in size. -Sena F.

Very nice -Alexis V.

An amazing wheel! I had mine shipped all the way to Singapore and did not incur any extra tax charges. The stand itself is perfectly weight and stable, and assembly is relatively intuitive as well. My Syrian hamster has a bad habit of peeing occasionally as he runs, so it's great that the plastic track and covers are easy to dismantle, and you can clean every nook and cranny. The plastic is also of a good quality(there's no sign of discoloration after 3 months of use and exposure to pet pee). As promised, it is also really quiet. -Corliss L.

I bought one of these a few years when we got our sugar gliders and they loved it so much we decided to get another one so they both have one. They are in them all the time. And they are so quiet. All you hear is their nails hitting the plastic. -Charles J.

It is a high quality wheel, very quiet. I have a White Dwarf hamster and she can still use the 12" version perfectly. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because the cage attachment does not work properly. If the screw is too loose then the wheel will fall. If the screw is too tight then the wheel encounters resistance and the hamster cannot turn the wheel. There is no way that the wheel will stay up on its own. So I used some tie wire to keep the cage attachment in place and it is now working fine. However, now I have to remove tie wire to clean the wheel which makes it that much harder to take out and clean. -Simon W.

[Response from Seller: We're glad to hear your hamster is enjoying the wheel! If you are having issues with the Cage Attachment, please reach out to our team at for troubleshooting advice. Thank you!]

Iv had this wheel for about 2 months now and my hamster loves it, my boyfriend likes it cuz it's quiet (I'm not complaining 😜 I'll agree with him that it is 🤫 you have to look in his cage to know if he's up or not 😆) and I liked it cuz it was a good size for him/it glows in the dark - how fun!!! - and iv heard a lot of positive things about it in the hamster community... It seems sturdy/like it will last a long time 🙂 The only down side for me this wheel has is how annoying it is to clean throughly and take in/out of his cage

by morag on June 20, 2019

My hamster loves this wheel! It's the perfect size for a large Syrian, as it keeps her back completely straight when she runs. It's also completely silent; unless I looked in her cage, I'd have no idea she was running. The only downside to the GLOW Wheel is that it needs a lot of light to glow. That's totally fine with me (I got the GLOW wheel cause I hate the colour orange lol!), but it might be a bummer for someone who is expecting it to glow brightly. -Michele B.

I have 4 of these and I love them for my small animals! -Michelle B.

My suggies absolutely love this wheel. So sad so many people have such bad opinions of this company. They sure are missing out.(: -Elainia S.

Most my cage toys glow in the dark. Having a good safe wheel that also glows is awesome. I needed to replace all my questionable freedom wheels when they started having issues with them breaking. I was given an orange silent runner on a toy trade for my custom designs and was impressed, so when i went to order and found glow was an option I took 2 for the same price as 1 freedom wheel. My gliders love the big wheels to run safely. -Jennifer C.

Great product it’s silent and with plenty of room for safe running. -Holly Z.

The wheel is awesome, pretty quite and it does glow but not like the picture shows. But my suggies love it so I do too. -Jonathan R.

by bgower on December 19, 2018

Awesome product! Very easy to change the standard wheel run with the one that trims the nails while the wheel is mounted. Put a black light on it for a few seconds and it glows for a few minutes. That being said, a black light shining on this during the day will really charge it for a midnight glow. -Brian G.

My lil Sugie loves her wheel. It doesn’t really glow much but that isn’t really important when it comes to her happiness. -Stephanie E-C.
