Basically you want something 10-15 watts halogen, equivalent or brighter. I'm a fan of cygolite products and not a fan of niterider products after using them. There are a variety of choices, but things to contemplate are:
Burn time, system weight, where the battery goes (water-bottle batteries mean one less water bottle), single/dual beam lights, recharging time, attachment method (how does it clip to the handlebars or your helmet for helmet mounted lights...be weary of thin plastic clips if you ever ride in the cold), and cost.
I'm a big fan of the cygolite HID light, but its kind of pricy so you may want something cheaper.
