Ultegra 6600 crankset 11 speed compatibility

Hello!

I upgraded my groupset to 6800, the only thing that I did not find anywhere is a perfect 11sp crankset.

Is the older 10sp Ultegra crankset compatible with the new system?

I know that the chainrings are closer to each other and a little bit thinner on the new systems, but can I use the old one until I find something or should I be more patient?

Thank you in advance!

    Will be fine - why are you struggling to find a 'perfect 11 speed chainset'?

    A store bought Ultegra crank is a bit pricey for me, so I try to find one used (or one that is in the same range), but where I live I do not find a lot.

    I bought on an internet retailer's ex-display clearance department - perfect condition, £60. Deal.

    Just look around - never ever buy anything like that from a shop unless you are minted.

    It's not 'best practice' but I have used a 6800 crankset with a 5700 groupset, and vice Versa before.
