This is a radial mounted caliper. See how the mount bolts are at far ends of the caliper?


This is a standard mount caliper - see how the mount bolts are not at the very ends of the caliper?



That's the difference in how they mount. Radial mount calipers are a more solid mount and flex less under extreme braking. For most street use radial mounted brakes are overkill, but in racing applications they are the mount of choice.
