Excellent anti squeal, wear and braking,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jagwire V-Brake Type Brake Blocks With Anti Squeal Compound (Sports)Have been using these for the past 4 months, with average mileage of 20 miles a day during the winter months, normally brake blocks last 3 months over the winter with the rain, grit etc, yet there is still plenty of wear left in them.
I have tried many brake blocks, from the cheap to the expensive and have always been blighted by excessive squealing, despite how i tried to clean the rims, and ive tried all methods, and the rims are a good quality rim.
The anti squeal compound does at is suggests, stops this squeal. Though not forever, after 4 months, there is a slight, intermittent squeal starting to develop in the front pair, but for the use and length of time I have had squeal free, reliable breaking, Ive given 5 stars and would highly recommend these.

If you want to reduce brake squeal, not only the type of brakes has an effect but also their positioning. If you try to angle them so they are closer to the wheel and the back and further from the wheel at the front, I have found that this helps a lot in reducing the brake squeal. I.e. arrange them like this:
\ || / (the wheel is turning in an upward direction.
