road bicycle brake pads

i have a schwinn world sport but it seems it doesn't brake well comparing to mountain bikes.

so i'm thinking of changing the brake pads. Currently, i have 3 sectioned pads..i dunno how it's called. lol

3 squares in a pad. Any suggestion about the 4 squares in a pad? (Also what kinda material is good for all weather)

Less than $10 a pair....

You probably have steel wheels on the Schwinn, which aren't the best for stopping. BUT, I like to keep things original. " Kool Stop " Salmon colored pads, & keep the edge of the rim wiped down with alcohol & that will help a lot !
