Crankset for Gates Carbon Drive Belt

Hi I would like what works better with a belt drive , have to be the ones from Gates or can be any other in the market? I'm building a bike for touring and long distance from scratch and my concern goes to how much drag and resistance to all sort of atmospheric conditions and toughness of the terrain can suit a frame from Light Blue Cycles.
Thanks

You're worried about drag and resistance from a crank?

I will take that as no concern at all, so what I want to know is whatever crank will work fine with a belt drive and a rohloff gear hub or there's is in the market a specific one to use with it?

I'm pretty sure you can use anything with the correct BCD. I have a Shimano SLX somethingorother crank arm on my bike right now.
