What does floating mean?
Floating means it is a two piece design that makes up the "rotor" The blade(What the brake caliper clamps on too when braking), and the carrier(Attaches to the hub). The blade is connected to the carrier by buttons or t-locks. Long story short, it helps keeps the heat generated from braking onto the blade itself and does not transfer to the carrier. This reduces chances for warpage and since the blade "floats" or tracks with the caliper, it can maintain better, more consistent braking.
