105 to SRAM Red

I have a Supersix from 2015, running 105.

I want to change to SRAM red, is this just a matter of buying a sram front/rear mech and levers/brake calipers? or is there something else i would need to make the switch? i assume i can re-use all my cables etc? I have a FSA powerbox, so won't be using the SRAM crankset.

also - i have 10 speed (So will be buying the 10 speed SRAM kit used). Anything else i should be aware of?

Thanks in advance!

How old are the cables and housing? Since you'll have the bike apart, might as well just replace them and get it over with.

I'd definitely change the inner and outer cables while you're taking everything apart. I'm not familiar with sram enough to know, just make sure there isn't any issue with the crank working with sram FD. There shouldn't be though.
