Let your furry sidekick get all the exercise she needs with Exotic Nutrition’s Silent Runner Small Animal Exercise Wheel. This wheel features a dual ball-bearing design that allows your little one to spin it without creating an annoying squeaking noise that other wheels can sometimes make. And since it’s designed without a center axle, it can also help prevent your pet from getting wrapped or tangled up in the wheel. Lastly, the four bean-shaped openings offer multiple points of entry, while the solid rear wall offers extra support and comfort as he runs.
The dual ball-bearing design creates a noise-free wheel.
Crafted without a center axle to help reduce the risk of fur and tail entanglement.
The sturdy stand is made of a heavy-duty metal material.
The textured surface helps give your BFF better traction.
Available in three different colors and sizes—small, regular and wide.
It gets dirty really fast and is difficult to clean. It's also quite heavy, and I worry about it tipping on my hamsters if I don't place it in their habitat just right. However, it is silent and it's not made of the wiring that can damage hamster feet. The small fits my Syrian hamsters perfect, and does not cause arching of their backs when they run on this wheel.

This wheel is truly silent and, in my experience with a baby syrian hamster, sturdy. I’ve seen reviews on other platforms saying that the wheel is loud because of its wobble, but with the 12 in regular i have not experienced this. The front piece is a little difficult to take off, which is pretty unfortunate because my hamster, Frumple, pees in her wheel. Overall super happy with this wheel, and so is Frumple (she absolutely ADORES this wheel, she literally just sits in it to groom herself, it’s her go to place). Also not related to the product itself, but Chewy ships FAST. Took less than 48 hours to get my package with the cheapest possible shipping.

(Also not abt my experience with this product in particular, but if you have a syrian hamster I would definitely recommend the 12 in over the 9 in, if you’re on the fence abt it like I was. 9 in is honestly too small for syrians and I can’t image my (literal) baby running on a wheel that small, to be honest. The 12 in is perfect.)… more
Definitely not silent

I've had the 12in wheel for a few weeks and it makes a constant metal clicking noise when my hamster runs on it. Some previous reviews mention the screw coming loose as the source of the noise but mine stays tight and is still noisy. I have tried multiple things to limit the noise to no avail: a solid layer of bedding underneath to make sure the stand isn't rattling, tightening the screw, re-assembling the wheel, etc. I'm thinking I might have gotten a defective one since I suspect the noise is coming from the "silent" ball bearing, but def. something to keep in mind before you buy.
Very large wheel but not stable

The wheel is not very silent. When my hamster is running on it, she goes very fast that the base is not strong enough to support her weight, which makes for a very loud noise. The wheel is only supported by one side, it tilts as she is spinning it. I think it needs a heavier base to support the animal that uses it.
Its also a little to expensive.

My hedgehog loves this wheel, and I love that the loves it. Perfect size for him!
One note the diagram inside the packaging mentions a black cap on the inside screw, but that was removed by the makers.
Lastly, it can be loud or move around a lot if there is any bedding under it. I ordered the side cage attachment, looking forward to using it!

The wheel is silent, a great size, and is large enough for my very large syrian. The orange silent runner must be quite small because I purchased the green wide one and the width is 5 inches. Similar to the Kaytee Comfort Wheel. If anyone is looking for a great wheel. Don’t waste you money on cheap temporary wheels like I did. BUY. THIS. ONE. NOW!
3rd one for sugar gliders

Our boys are rough on these wheels. We are on number 3, in 6 years. The old ones we had barely lasted 3 months at a time. And our sugar gliders are a little overweight and this wheel is still quiet. They sleep in our room so it is very important. Lol.
Nice and quiet

I have one of these for my hamster and she loves it - uses it every night. I got a large one for my male rats thinking it'd give them something to do. I put it on the bottom floor of their large cage and I feel like they were afraid of it because they wouldn't go down there to do their 'business'...it was all over the top two floors. I'm going to try it again and hope they'll get used to it. Love Chewy!!
The most silent wheel out there!

Originally I accidentally ordered the 12 inch wheel in orange which is nice as well! Very quiet and is perfect for Syrian hamsters! Unfortunately my bin cage wouldn’t shut with it on, so I got the 9 inch yellow wheel now and it’s perfect! Syrians need at least an 8 inch wheel so this just does it! Very quiet and won’t give your hamster bumble foot! Wire wheels are never safe for a hamster, so I highly recommend this wheel especially if you need to sleep in the same room!
My review is for the WIDE (GREEN) wheel, not the yellow one pictured

Not sure why the yellow one shows up, I have the green one, which is larger and wider. My hamster loves this wheel, it stays together and is safe for his little feet. Not too bad to clean either. If you get it make sure you have a very large cage I have a Prevue Pet Products Universal Small Animal Home 528 D 32½'' L x 19'' W x 17½'' H and I had taken out the platform. I mounted it to the cage at first, but like it better free standing. My Golden (Syrian) hamster needed a large wheel, he is pretty big.
