In order to realize a two-piston floating caliper disc brake with a wide caliper, the axially outer side of the caliper is supported by radially extending protrusions shaped on the outer brake shoe. While the two protrusions have the same depth, they differ in their width. Corresponding circular grooves within the caliper around recess openings on the opposite side of the brake cylinders, however, are identical. Therefore, a radial support of the brake caliper can be carried out by both protrusions while a tangential positioning of the caliper is limited to the wider one of the two protrusions.
