11 speed cranks with ten speed chain

Hello,
I'm thinking of using an 11 speed Chorus crank with a 10 speed Centaur group.
Will this affect the wear of the Chorus chain rings?
Affect shifting?
thanks

There shouldn't be any real issue, since the slightly wider chain will certainly run on the rings. There might (that's might as in maybe, but probably not) be some reduction in available angle to smaller cassette sprockets from the inner ring. That means you might not be able to ride crossed over 39/11 or 12. That shouldn't be an issue since you probably use these combinations anyway.

fietsbob tends to be a bit cryptic and often more confusing than helpful. Apparently he means that Campy will say you need a complete 11-speed drivetrain to go with the 11-speed crank. I.e. you are expected to drink the company's Kool Aid and buy the entire group.

If you have rubbing problems with the 10-speed chain you might have to go to an 11-speed chain but that should work fine with the remaining 10-speed components. The downside is that only Campy makes an 11-speed chain and you need an expensive Park chain tool or an absurdly expensive Campy chain tool to install it.
