My son has a late model road bike with 10-sp 105 group but low end compact FSA crank/rings.

He's wondering if a SRAM Red crank and rings are compatible with Shimano FD and chain.

And this raises a curiosity in me how cross compatible components are between the two brands.

The only non-compatibility is between shifters and rear derailleurs. Match those two and mix whatever else you please. In fact we've been curing a 2012 Sram Rival front shifting issue by swapping in 105 front derailleurs. I use a 2013 Red crank with Shimano 9spd chainrings and a KMC chain, craziness!
