“Le moins vite” or “le plus lent”
Is one form preferred over the other or is it a matter of personal choice/context?
This relates to:Le plus and le moins = the most and the least (superlative of adverbs) -

Actually in 'le moins vite', 'vite' being an adverb its equivalent would be 'le plus lentement', meaning the same thing emphasis being on speed or lack of it:
Arrivez à votre destination le moins vite possible ( or le plus lentement possible)
'Lent' and its opposite 'rapide' are both adjectives.
Here are some examples :
C'est la voiture la plus rapide au monde.
C'est le moyen de transport le plus lent au monde.
Hope this helps!
