Barin is the second planet in Crash Nitro Kart. It is a frozen, hilly land that somehow has lava, mines, snow, and underwater sections. The planet's name comes from the word "barren", which means empty, as the planet is desolate and abandoned. The boss of the planet is Nash and the race against him takes place in Deep Sea Driving.
There is an outdoor section with brick ruins, icy machinery and a snowy pitch. Snow falls around the mountains outside. There is an underwater tunnel with the view of the seafloor underneath. The sea is above the snow and is easy to find as Barin is ice, snow and lava. Barin is in a layout with the hubworld being on the sea in-slope and with the tracks on the outside of the hub, not far away, with the exception of Deep Sea Driving, which is quite far under the sea.
It is unknown whether Barin is in the habitable zone of its solar system or not. It is a frozen wasteland that seems to be abandoned. However, there is water on the planet, implying that the planet is in the habitable zone. Although the water could possibly be underneath the surface, like Jupiter's moon , suggesting that it may not be in the habitable zone.
