With us you have a wide choice of different types, sizes, colors and brands of running wheels and running discs for a competitive price!
MATERIAL OF THE TIRE WHEEL
What is the best material? Wood, Metal, Plastic? For Degoes, it is important to choose a running wheel that is chew-resistant or chewy. A rod-free running wheel is made of metal and a rod-safe running wheel is made of wood. Plastic is not recommended.
CLEAN WOODEN WALKING PADS
It was always a challenge to clean a wooden wheel, but luckily that is a thing of the past. Nowadays there are two types of cleaning products with which wooden wheels can be cleaned easily. The first is CSI Urine Spray and the second is the Eco Pets Urine Buster. Both cleaning agents work on an enzyme basis and tackle the bacteria that are in urine. These bacteria provide the well-known urine air. Both sprays remove the bacteria and dirt so that the running wheel is fresh and clean again.
RUNS DO NOT WASH IN WATER
For all running wheels, it is not good to rinse them completely under the tap. It is very important that the turning mechanism (ball bearing) does not get wet. The more often the turning mechanism is flushed, the stiffer it becomes and can therefore beep and run stiffer earlier.
We do not recommend washing wooden running wheels with water. Wiping with a damp cloth is no problem, but it is not good for the running wheels to wet them completely. By making the running wheel wet, the glue can come off.
A running wheel can become more even with time. For a squeaky running wheel, we recommend a drop of olive oil. This can be applied to the turning mechanism.
