You might wanna get a new frame.
A bend that big especially with hi ten can weaken the shit out of it.
But if you're on a budget you could try hammering it but that's a bit risky.

Out of curiosity, how did you manage to bend it that way? smile)

I'm afraid that the only solution is a new frame

Start saving up for a new frame or bike but if you want to try to fix it my advice would be to use a clamp and slowly tighten it so the bend moves slowly, if you don't have access to a clamp then a rubber mallet.
As the first person said its risky so we are not responsible for any harm haha, but seriously i wouldn't go doing jumps on that frame IMO. Its only a 2015 model so check out if has a one year warranty or something. Also, call up a bike shop about this that might help.

You bent it the wrong way. If you jumped stairs the bend would be on the top. I'm confused
