Our first 2 gerbils never chewed the Qute Wheel, but our current 2 gerbils are destroyers and have completely wrecked their wheel, which is why we've had to buy another (It did take them a long time, but they are both very determined creatures) The wheel is a great product, and they both love to run in it for a long time, but I think it could be even better if a metal rim could be placed around the edge (like at the top and bottom of the Qute tube) to stop the gerbils from being able to chew the plastic.
Omlet Says: Hi Sabina, thank you for your review. I am going to pass your suggestion onto our product design team, its so great to get feedback so that we can learn from it and I know they will appreciate hearing your thoughts. We hope you and your pets love your Qute! Kind regards, Omlet
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.
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.
