1. A sliding-caliper disk brake, comprising:
an application-side brake pad and a reaction-side brake pad;
a fixed brake carrier including two pairs of carrier horns, a reaction-side one of the pairs of carrier horns being configured to abut respective lateral sides of a reaction-side brake pad and an application-side one of the pairs of carrier horns being configured to abut respective lateral sides of an application-side brake pad, and two hub arches, a reaction-side one of the hub arches extending between the reaction-side pair of carrier horns and an application-side one of the two hub arches extending between the application-side pair of carrier horns; and
a brake caliper including a brake caliper rear section, a brake caliper application section configured to receive a brake application mechanism and tension struts connecting the brake caliper rear section and the brake caliper application section,
wherein
the reaction-side carrier horns and the reaction-side hub arch form a reaction-side brake pad slot configured to support a radially-inner side and the lateral sides of the reaction side brake pad, and the application-side carrier horns and the application-side hub arch form an application-side brake pad slot configured to support a radially-inner side and the lateral sides of the application side brake pad, and
a spacing between opposing radially outer ends of brake pad abutment surfaces of the reaction side pair of carrier horns is greater than a spacing between opposing radially outer ends of brake pad abutment surfaces of the application side pair of carrier horns.
