Types Of Brakeblock For Rim Brakes On Tandems
By
08 Jan 2015
Does the make (or the compound) of blocks make much difference to the braking power, the heat dissipation, or speed that blocks wear out at (assuming whatever type of brake you have is set up properly)?

Thanks.
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

Yes, the compound in brake blocks makes a huge difference to all of those factors. The problem however is there is not one "super" block that is the best at all because as you improve the brake feel and power you have to make the blocks out of a much softer compound which will cause it to wear quicker. These blocks you are looking at are in the Salmon Compound which is there compound designed to increase braking power in wet or gritting conditions.

Thanks.
