SRAM S-951 "Yaw" cranks with Shimano 105 group?

Hey guise. I recently ordered a Scott CR1 Pro frameset, which uses BB30, which means I'm gonna be needing a crankset in a week or so. I've narrowed my choices down to SRAM Red, FSA SL-K Light, and FSA K-Force Light (but I'm definitely open to suggestions). However, I've also seen the SRAM S951 and from what I've read, it has a yaw feature that seems to be only compatible with the SRAM Red derailleur.

I'm gonna be running full Shimano 105 on my rig. Would the S-951 give me problems? Thanks~!

The CR1 pro doesn't use BB30. The crankset would probably work fine, but stick to GXP if you're going to use SRAM

You'll need the Sram PF86 bottom bracket to go with the S951 crankset (GXP...as pointed out above). There's really nothing "yaw" about the cranks other than their compatibility with the Red Yaw FD. You'll probably find "best" (as opposed to "adequate" or "good") shifting by using Shimano rings though.

Actually, the CR1 pro frameset is PF86, not BB30. Unless their website is a liar.
