Ultegra 6800 11spd compatible with 10spd SRAM Force crankset?

Would there be any compatibility issues using a 10spd SRAM Force crankset with Ultegra 6800 groupset?

Thanks

Nothing that I would lose sleep over

The chainring spacing for 11s cranksets is a tad narrower than 10s, but it works fine nonetheless.

You might endup with chain rub at the near extreme earlier than usual, but it will work fine.

Chainring width and chain inner dimensions are identical with both 10 & 11sp..

Should be fine. The crank end of drivetrains is much less picky than the derailleur end.

+2 it should work fine if your running a full matched Ultegra groupset shifters and DR's. You may get a little chain rub at the extremes but I wouldn't consider that an issue.

Front shifting might not be as crisp and smooth as if you were using the matching crankset. Shimano, just like SRAM and Campagnolo engineers its components to work as a system

Well if one was realy picky they could upgrade the charinring set to a matched 11 and keep the current cranks.
