Carbon fiber i think is a little bit lighter but not by much. Kevlar is definitely stronger though. The company i work for had to cut several parts for a aerospace company to use in their sub-orbital vehicle and we get too see what stuff they use. For landing gears they use a thick ass kevlar block that we had to use a water jet to cut. For the control panels, they use carbon fibers. It was pretty cool. We kinda ruin of the the control panels so we had to do it for free. Damn small panel cost 800 dollars.
