A method for transforming fast solitons into slow ones in bandgap fibers is proposed. The approach is based on the deceleration of the solitons by intrapulse Raman scattering, which can be achieved for fiber modes having a cutoff frequency. We develop a comprehensive theory for the soliton slowdown and elucidate how the fiber losses introduce a fundamental minimum for the soliton velocity.
