Nope, neither can I. Ride also has them, but they also break. I think there are some other brands that used to do them but have now stopped.

The problem is that in cold conditions they become harder and less flexible, making them more prone to snap and break. That plus the constant stretching and the flex limitations caused by not being able to hold much stress. (think about stretching a rubber band. When it turns white from stress, it stays that way and is fragile from there on because it is near breaking point).
