It is not silent but it is a LOT quieter than the original wheel, which is great as I keep my hamster in my bedroom. It would be even better if they had wheels in different sizes as this one takes up a lot of space and I have a dwarf so could do with a smaller wheel.
It is a great design but it is not silent. It is a good size I'd say about a 10" wheel and attaches to the cage easily.
I have the cage and got the wheel with it but after 2 years of my lil furball constantly running on it it decided to loosen from the attachment on the back the wheel is just the right size for a Syrian which it's great as there is no back problem or feet problems for him
Nick Fury the Hamster loves it!
Our 2 gerbils love this wheel it's just the right size and pretty quiet although not silent. For the price it's brilliant.
We bought this for our son so he could have a hamster for christmas, and it is brilliant. The design is really good for cleaning and the wheel is actually quiet!! Also when our first wheel broke quite quickly Omlet were amazing and sent out another one really quickly with no problems at all! And the hamster cage looks more like a piece of furniture which is a massive bonus too!!
We replaced the original Omlet gerbil wheel with this one as it was incredibly noisy and to our amazement the new 'silent exercise wheel' really does work! We can hardly hear our gerbils running on the wheel now and they seem to like it more too.
